The UBC Postdoctoral Association (PDA) is excited to announce Postdoc Research Day 2018 (http://blogs.ubc.ca/ubcpda/2018/10/ubc-pda-postdoc-research-day-2018/)!

It will be held 9am – 5:30pm on Monday December 3rd in the Pharmaceutical Sciences Building on the UBC Vancouver campus.

This event gives postdocs and research associates from across UBC the opportunity to showcase their research in presentations designed for a non-expert audience. This year’s event will be a full day, and will include 15-minute research talks, posters, a keynote presentation by Dr. Matthew Dahabieh, Chief Science Officer for Renaissance Bioscience, and a panel discussion on careers featuring former postdocs who have transitioned into a variety of jobs, including industry, start-ups, and government.

Submit your abstract today (http://blogs.ubc.ca/ubcpda/2018/10/research-day-2018-abstract-submission/) – there will be prizes for the best 3 talks ($150/100/50) and posters ($75/50/25)! All UBC postdocs and research associates are invited to submit an abstract for a talk and/or poster. The deadline to be considered for a talk is 14 November, and for posters is 23 November.

The event is free thanks to the PDA’s generous sponsors, the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies, the UBC Vice President Academic, and the Life Sciences Institute, as well as our venue sponsor, the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences. It will be fully catered with coffee breaks, a light lunch, and be followed by an evening networking reception. More details and registration are available online (http://blogs.ubc.ca/ubcpda/2018/10/ubc-pda-postdoc-research-day-2018/).
