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