PGSC Professional Development Seminar
Okay, Google: Help Me with My Resume
Time: 2:30 pm
Speaker: Homer Wolfmeister, Google
Abstract: Crafting an attractive resume is a skill that takes practice to develop, but the process becomes much easier once you know what search committees are looking for. Sharing his experience screening Google applicants, Homer Wolfmeister will overview the components of a strong resume for typical industry careers. He will also outline the hiring process from initial screenings, to resume evaluation, to getting an interview. There will be time at the end for questions about any part of the hiring process.

Network in Neutrinos, Nuclear Astrophysics, and Symmetries (N3AS) Seminar
Potential Effects of Fast Neutrino Flavor Transformations on Neutrino-Driven Wind and Supernova Nucleosynthesis
Time: 3:30 pm
Speaker: Andre Sierverding , University of Minnesota
Abstract: Recently, the possibility that fast neutrino flavor transformations may occur very close to the core of a collapsing massive star has received a lot of
attention. Such transformations would affect the conditions of the wind driven by the intense neutrino emission from a proto-neutron star (PNS) where nuclei
heavier than Fe can be produced. We show that flavor transformations would lead to more proton-rich outflows and more favorable conditions for a nu-p process
to occur. Similarly, the conditions of the innermost, neutrino-heated supernova ejecta would also be affected and I illustrate possible effects with nucleosynthesis
calculations based on a 3D supernova model.
