USF Postdoctoral Research Symposium

Friday, September 24, 2021
Online via Teams 12:00 – 1:30 pm ET
Sign up to present by September 10!

The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs is hosting the annual Postdoctoral Research Symposium on Friday, September 24, 2021, virtually on Teams, as part of our celebration of National Postdoctoral Appreciation Week. The symposium brings together postdocs from all over campus to present their research to a broad audience in form of quick 5-minute "lightning" talks. The top two presenters will win travel awards for use towards a conference! All postdocs are encouraged to apply.

Presentation Format: You will have 5 minutes and a maximum of 5 slides to convey the scope and significance of your research in a concise, engaging manner without technical jargon. Judging is based on your ability to effectively communicate your research to a general academic audience.

Applications are due by 5pm on Friday, September 10. Space is limited and we will notify you if you have been selected to participate no later than September 14.
