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 each present their research — in just three minutes or less — before a panel of 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. There will be a trivia contest for the audience with small prizes too. Assemblymember David Chiu, representing district 17 – San Francisco, will give opening remarks this year. A reception will follow the postdoc presentations, giving the judges a little time to deliberate, and 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. Read more about the contest.
