Research Day Sep 2013

You are invited to participate in our annual Research Day, celebrated to recognize and highlight research initiatives of our fellow registered members, and ultimately to network with other PDFs and representatives from interested organizations.

This year PDFA members will have the opportunity to present Research Posters at dedicated space in the Butterdome during Careers Day 2013, organized by CAPS: Your U of A Career Centre.

The Research Day includes a reception for all registered PDFs, and where the award prizes for the top three “The Marketable Postdoc” will be announced. Additionally, you will have more opportunity to interact with representatives from organizations that are interested in connecting with people with graduate degrees and PDF experiences.
