MRSEC Executive Committee

The UW MRSEC has postdoc and graduate student members on the executive committee – one representative from each IRG. This provides the representatives with the opportunity to develop leadership skills and ensures that students and postdoctoral associates in the center have a voice in decision-making processes. The student representatives of the MRSEC Executive Committee are selected on an annual basis. Interested? Contact Kerri Phillips at kphillips22@wisc.edu.
