5-cubed Mixers - Volunteers Needed!!!

Wednesday 2nd May, 5pm, Hopkins Stephenson Seminar Room

The Biochemistry Postdoc 5-cubed mixer is back!!!

The session will once again feature quick 5-slide, 5-minute presentations from 5 different postdoc speakers.

For this to be a success, we're looking for 5 postdoc volunteers to give 5-slide presentations. If you're interested, please do email us at postdocs-committee@bioc.cam.ac.uk by Tuesday 23 April.

The aim is to create opportunities for postdocs to meet each other, learn about who's doing what and start conversations (and collaborations) going. So the slides should just provide a quick overview of what the speaker is working on (no need to have beautiful results or a world-changing project to present).

To encourage collaboration and sharing of expertise within the department, the last slide of each talk should highlight (1) speaker's areas of expertise, or topics they feel they could share advice on (e.g. chromatin biology or cell culture) and (2) a topic or a technique where the speaker would possibly like some advice from colleagues (e.g. DNA repair or protein crystallography).
