2017 Postdoc Slam

The second annual Postdoc Slam competition will culminate in this LIVE event!

The seven to 10 postdocs chosen as finalists for the 2017 Postdoc Slam competition will present their research in front of the judges and a live audience in Byers Auditorium in Genentech Hall at Mission Bay on September 19 at 4 p.m. This event is likely to be standing-room only, so mark your calendar and plan to show up early! The winner of the competition will be awarded a $3,000 cash prize; the runner-up $1,500; and the "people's choice" $750. This year, all other live event finalists will also be awarded $100 for their efforts.

A reception will follow the postdoc presentations, giving the judges a little time to deliberate. The awardees will be announced at the reception.

Note that YOU may also be a judge! The winner of the "People's Choice" category ($750 prize) will be chosen by the audience.
