SBU Celebrates National Postdoc Appreciation Week
The week of September 15-19, 2014, was National Postdoc Appreciation Week, when Stony Brook University and over 100 other institutions across the U.S. and Canada celebrated the contributions postdocs make to the research enterprise. You can read about Stony Brook's events here, and learn more about other celebrations nation-wide at the National Postdoctoral Association's Web site.
On September 18, 2014, the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs sponsored the SBU Postdoc Spotlight at the Wang Center. As part of National Postdoc Appreciation Week, the Spotlight was an opportunity for some of our postdocs to spotlight their research in short, TED-like talks designed for a general audience. The Spotlight was an evolution of Stony Brook's postdoc research symposium, building on the symposia's past success by focusing even more on the importance of communicating science for any audience. Postdoc speakers received specialized coaching from the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science in how to distill the excitement of their research for non-specialists.
Spotlight presentation slides. Coming Soon!
