Success of the 1st Pint of Postdoc

We are happy to share photographs and feedback from the Pint of Postdoc that we supported to recognize and celebrate the hard work and contribution of postdoctoral researchers to academic research and teaching at UCD. The event was co-organised and co-funded by the CHAS Postdoc Forum and the EDI committees of the College of Science, College of Engineering and Architecture, and College of Health and Agricultural Sciences

54 postdocs representing 15 schools from across the three colleges attended the event, which saw 8 speakers from the College of Science compete against 1 from CHAS and 1 from CoEA. All 10 speakers were given the remit of presenting about any area of interest for 5 minutes with 5 minutes for questions. Some chose to talk about their research while others presented their research journeys or discussed postdoc life.

Audience members voted for their favourite talks and the top three received prizes (one-4-all vouchers worth €150, €100, and €50). All speakers received certificates acknowledging their contribution to the event and all attendees received refreshment vouchers.

It is hoped that the event will be repeated during the academic year – so watch this space for more information!
