GW Postdoc Appreciation Day and August Events

The GWPA continues to invite abstract submissions for a poster presentation at the GWPA Postdoc Appreciation Day on September 19th! We welcome you to a celebration of the great work of GW postdocs and a chance to advance your career.

There are also several other events in August. Details below:

1. GWPA POSTDOC APPRECIATION DAY

SEPTEMBER 19 | 10:30 AM - 4 PM | SEH BASEMENT (B1167 -- THE IVY WALL AREA AND ADJACENT CLASSROOMS)

You are invited to celebrate the great work of George Washington University Postdocs and advance your career at the GW Postdoc Association (GWPA) Postdoc Appreciation Day. GWPA will host a career panel with speakers that can advise you on both industry and academic careers. This will be followed by a workshop that will teach you how to perfect a short “elevator pitch” about your research. You can practice using this elevator pitch as the day finishes up with a round of poster presentations by GW postdocs. Lunch will be provided as well as snacks during the poster presentations.

We welcome submissions for poster presentations! Please submit the title, authors, and abstract when registering here. Registration is required.

The first five postdocs to register will have their poster costs covered by the GWPA. We will contact those five individuals to work out the details. Prizes will be awarded to the best posters: 1st = $300, 2nd = $200, 3rd = $100.

2. ICE CREAM SOCIAL

AUGUST 12 | 1 PM | SEH FIRST FLOOR COMMON AREA

In the midst of the summer heat, we can probably all get behind having some ice cream. So clear your schedules at 1 PM on the Monday the 12th to have some ice cream with your fellow postdocs in the 1st floor common area of SEH. Please RSVP to gwpostdoc@gwu.edu so we can procure enough ice cream for everyone.

3. DATA CARPENTRY - GEOSPATIAL WORKSHOP

AUGUST 19 - 20 | 9 AM - 4:30 PM | NCLC @ GELMAN LIBRARY (2130 H ST., NW)
