Our goal is to bring early career researchers (non-faculty) together so they can meet, network and share research. Do you have a job interview coming up that you want to practice for? Are you going to give a talk at an upcoming meeting or conference? Are you a graduate student with an upcoming candidacy exam or defense seminar? Are you writing a manuscript, and want to present your data? Or, do you just need a place to bounce ideas off of your peers, troubleshoot, and get some constructive feedback? We are always looking for presenters!
Generally, talks should be short (20-30 mins), and should be casual, and open to discussion, unless you have specific requirements (eg, practice talk). If you have specific needs, just let us know!
Check back regularly for new meeting dates to be posted or subscribe to the Mailing List to receive event announcements.Follow YKavli on Twitter or LinkedIn.
