The Postdoctoral Fellows Office (PDFO), as part of its Professional Development workshop series, is pleased to announce that registration is now open for the following upcoming workshop. This event is open to UBC postdocs only. Please distribute to postdocs in your department to help encourage registration for this event:
Thursday, May 30, 2013 from 3:00 PM – 6:00 PM
GSS Ballroom – Thea Koerner House (6371 Crescent Road) – view map
Looking for a one-on-one opportunity to discuss tips on navigating your career in academia or industry? Join us for Speed Mentoring; a fun, fast-paced event in which PDFs will have the opportunity to interact with current faculty and industry members who will share their perspective and answer questions. Mentors from all areas of research and training will be participating, to offer brief one-on-one advice to postdocs, ten minutes at a time. Please join us for a wine and cheese networking event immediately following. Please see the attached poster for more details.
Early registration is strongly encouraged as it is on a first-come, first-served basis. With registration, the PDFO will organise the time into ten minute increments, ideally with a chance for each PDF to meet with their choice of mentor. Please note to register early as the mentor’s timetables fill up quickly. The PDFO will endeavor to ensure that as many of the registrant’s chosen mentors will be scheduled.
