There will be seven tables set up each with a different faculty member to discuss a specific topic relevant to the postdoc and beyond. A small group of postdocs will spend 30 minutes with each faculty and we will rotate the groups for a total of 3 seatings. After the discussions, we will provide lunch and an opportunity to network further until 1pm.
