About the Southeastern Biogeochemistry Symposium
Founded in 2014 by Dr. Jennifer Glass of the Georgia Institute of Technology, SBS is a 2-day early career-centric symposium held annually on a weekend in March or April. SBS is a safe space for graduate students, postdocs, and advanced undergraduate students to present research in the interdisciplinary fields of geobiology and biogeochemistry and share their work with faculty from colleges and universities throughout the southeastern United States.
SBS attracts ~200 participants (students, postdocs, and faculty) from over 20 colleges, universities, and marine labs representing ~12 states in the southeast. SBS is organized by a local graduate student/postdoc committee with guidance and oversight from the faculty steering committee.
