Western postdoctoral scholars, are you interested in establishing interdisciplinary collaborations and expanding your professional network? If so, Western has the event for you.

Sponsored by the Postdoctoral Association at Western and the School of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies, the Postdoc Interdisciplinary Collaboration Workshop is scheduled for 1-4 p.m. Thursday, May 29, in the University Community Centre, room 147 a/b.

This free networking and collaboration opportunity is designed to spark conversations and collaborations between postdocs working in diverse areas. Organizers stress the workshop format will be postdoc focused.

All Western postdocs are invited to attend in three categories:

  1. General participation (no preparation required);
  2. Short presentations (eight minutes including questions) outlining research or technical problems you are currently having that lies outside your areas of expertise and the types of collaborators you are looking for; and
  3. Shorter presentations (three-four minutes) introducing the main themes of your own research and expertise you can contribute to a collaboration.

All talks should be aimed at a general audience.
