    The New South Wales branch of the Statistical Society of Australia warmly invites all undergraduate, postgraduate and early career statisticians and data scientists to attend our annual event for Early Career and Student Statisticians on Thursday 29th September 2022 at 6pm. The event will take place at the Courtyard Cafe of the University of Sydney.

    You can RSVP for the event using the following link: https://www.statsoc.org.au/event-4953220.

    This event is partially sponsored by the Sydney University Postgraduate Representative Association (SUPRA). 



    This year we have the pleasure of hosting a handful of inspiring early career speakers and mid-career speakers, working in various industries. The speakers have been invited to share what they’ve learned, what they’ve achieved, what they’ve enjoyed and what surprised them, as well as, perhaps, what they don’t like, what they haven’t learned, and so on. We also have a number of senior industry speakers who have been invited to provide their sage advice, their insights and general guidance to those interested in developing a fruitful career in the industry.

    We will have 4 speakers in total and each speaker will give a 10-minute talk, followed by a networking session. Catering and drinks will be provided at the event. There will be plenty of opportunities for attendees to approach the speakers and each other freely.

     We charge $20 for non-members at this event to cover for operational costs, though non-member students will also gain a year of membership with SSA NSW. 

    Join us for the Early Career and Student Statisticians Career Event 2022 and you will also have a chance to win one of our lucky door prizes!

    Please note that you will have to bring your USYD student ID if you registered as a SUPRA member.
