3-Minute Postdoc Slam

Date & Time

Thursday, 28 June 2018 - 3:00pm to 5:00pm


Michael Smith Laboratories, 2185 East Mall


UBC Postdoctoral Association



The UBC PDA's annual 3-Minute Postdoc Slam is back! This is a speed conference to show off your cool research at UBC using only a single slide! In the previous years we had a lot of fun, while learning so much about what interesting stuff others are working on! And what’s more – the winners of the competition will bring home some shiny cash prizes.

Although the competition is open to postdocs only, we openly invite undergrads and grad students to register and attend.

Keynote Speaker

The keynote speaker this year is Dr. Dave Ng. Dr. Ng is Director of the Advanced Molecular Biology Laboratory (AMBL). He is a geneticist, science educator, science literacy academic, part time writer, and faculty based at the University of British Columbia. His current research interests revolve around children’s identity around concepts of science and creativity, as well as game based learning of science concepts.

As usual, we’ll have a coffee break during the competition and a reception after the competition. This is an excellent networking opportunity to meet with the fellow postdocs over some appies and refreshments!
