Connecticut Storrs

The Graduate School at the University of Connecticut has three exciting events planned to celebrate and further support its postdoc communities. Please join them on Tuesday, September 18 through Thursday, September 20 at Storrs campus.

The Graduate School wants to know how it can better support you in your scholarly and social journey here at UConn. Why not pop by and share a slice of pizza and chat directly with dean Kent E. Holsinger and your colleagues about postdoctoral support at UConn.

When and where? Tuesday, September 18 at 12:00 p.m. at the Giolas conference room in the Nathan L. Whetten Graduate Center.

The Graduate School knows that there are more people finishing their doctorates, completing their postdoctoral contracts, and wanting to move beyond adjunct life than ever. With an over-saturated academic job market, how can YOU stand out? Let them first provide you with a hearty lunch after which they will turn this challenging question to those who have been successful in recently transitioning to tenure-track or permanent teaching positions.

When and where? Wednesday, September 19, 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Konover auditorium. A hearty lunch will be provided.

Data Blitz is an internal UConn research competition for postdocs held during NPAW. Each accepted competitor presents a five-minute “elevator pitch” of their research using a maximum of four slides. A panel of experienced faculty and staff assess these pitches and award cash prizes at the end of the competition (The Graduate School reserves the right determine the appropriate use of funds. Note that these funds cannot be used for conference travel).

1st prize: $1000
2nd prize: $750
3rd prize: $500

Post-event, participants will receive collated feedback and comments to help develop their presentations in future and will be featured on The Graduate School’s website.

When and where? Thursday, September 20, 11:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Alumni House. A stellar lunch will be provided for all participants and attendees.

Come along even if you’re not presenting:

  • Start developing your own elevator pitch by seeing a broad spectrum of research from different fields and disciplines.
  • Learn the tips and tricks on how to shape your own elevator pitch from experienced faculty.
  • Support your postdoc colleagues.
  • Free lunch.
