3 Minute Postdoc Slam 2019
June 14, 2019, 2019
Our 3 Minute Postdoc Slam is back!
When? June 14th, 3 pm to 5:30 pm, followed by a catered evening reception
Where? Michael Smith labs on UBC campus, room 102
What is happening?
The 3 Minute Slam is a speed conference, showing the awesome research of UBC postdocs in just 3 minutes 0n a single static slide. Learn how amazing the research of other UBC postdocs is and present your own project in a short and sweet talk – for the chance to win amazing prizes! Cash prizes will be given out for the three best talks – and this is not all. Coffee and cookies will be provided and there will also be a keynote lecture about science communication by Kaylee Byers and Michael Unger, the people behind Nerd Nite Vancouver. The event is followed by a networking reception with free food and drinks. Please indicate if you want to stay for the reception so that we can estimate catering size.
Everyone can attend, but the 3 minute talk competition is only open to postdocs. Register here until May 30th! Please submit an abstract if you want to present your research in a 3 minute talk.
Sounds great! I want to present! How do I prepare myself?
It is a hard-learned yet critical skill to communicate the essence of your research to an audience with a wide range of expertise and background. It may be intimidating, but the result is fun and rewarding, let alone the prizes you can win! For some inspiration on great 3 minute talks check out these helpful tips and have a look at winning talks from previous years on our YouTube channel and on the UBC grad student’s 3 Minute Thesis website.
I don’t want to present. Can I still attend?
For sure! It’s going to be a lot of fun.
