2012 Postdoctoral Research Symposium
In honor of 2012 National Postdoc Appreciation Week, Stony Brook University's Office of Postdoctoral Affairs will be holding its first Postdoctoral Research Symposium on Thursday, September 20. Postdocs from Stony Brook University, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and Brookhaven National Laboratory are invited to participate and attend. Our goal is to promote a sense of community by having Postdocs from all three institutions informally educate each other about their research. The event is also meant to give Postdocs an opportunity to network with Stony Brook faculty, graduate students, staff and local employers. For those interested in participating, please see the deadlines that apply.
PRESENTATION GUIDELINES AND DEADLINES: July 15 - see instructions
For those participants interested in giving a 10-minute presentation of their research, please submit a 250-500 word abstract and register by 7/15. Please see the instructions for further details.
POSTER GUIDELINES AND DEADLINES: August 15 - see instructions
For those participants who would like to present a poster of their research, please submit the title of your poster and register by 8/15. See instructions for further details. Graduate students are welcome to present posters at this event.
EVENT REGISTRATION DEADLINE: September 15 - All attendees must complete a registration form in order to attend this event, regardless of whether or not you are giving an oral presentation or presenting a poster.
