Postdoc Research Day 2019 on December 2 – Registration and abstract submission now open
The UBC Postdoctoral Association (PDA) is excited to announce Postdoc Research Day 2019
This interdisciplinary meeting will be held from 9am –5:30pm on Monday December 2nd in the Pharmaceutical Sciences Building on the UBC Vancouver campus.
Postdoc Research Day gives postdocs and research associates from across UBC the opportunity to showcase their research in presentations designed for a non-expert audience. This year’s event will include 15 minute full talks and 5 min lightning talks by postdocs affiliated with UBC on a wide array of topics. Anyone can attend! Register now
In addition, there will be a keynote presentation by Dr. Josef Penninger about his experience in academia and industry and his path to becoming the director of the Life Sciences Institute at UBC. A career panel discussion will feature former postdocs who have transitioned into a variety of jobs outside academia, including representatives from the local companies STEMCELL Technologies and Lumerical. Furthermore, we are hosting our first ever postdoc townhall meeting, in which we will discuss issues that are relevant to the postdoc community.
Submit your abstract today – there will be prizes for the best talks! All UBC postdocs and research associates are encouraged to submit an abstract for a talk and/or lightning talk. The abstract submission deadline is November 15th.
Postdoc Research Day will be fully catered with a light lunch and be followed by an evening networking reception with dinner. More details about the event and instructions for registration and abstract submission are available online.
Attendance is free thanks to the PDA’s generous sponsors, the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies, the UBC Vice President Academic, our event sponsor STEMCELL technologies, as well as our venue sponsor, the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences.
