VOLUNTEERS WANTED - For this to be a success, we're looking for 5 postdoc to give 5-slide presentations. If you're interested, please do email us at by Friday 26 January.


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) 

(2) a topic or a technique where the speaker would possibly like some advice from colleagues (e.g. DNA repair or protein crystallography).
