Pint of Postdoc Event

We are supporting the upcoming ‘Pint of Postdoc’ event being organised by The CHAS Postdoc Forum. Postdocs from CHAS and the College of Science are coming together to organise a “Pint of Science” type event that has imaginatively been named “Pint of Postdoc”. This informal event will bring together postdocs, research scientists and research fellows in our colleges to give informal talks on science (any aspect of science you want!), share a drink (one will be free!), eat some food (free as well!) and have some lovely chats with friends and new acquaintances.

Please find the important information below:

When is it? Thursday 14th of September, 4 pm.
Where is it? Clubhouse Bar, O’Neill Lounge (student union)
What will it involve? Talks will begin at around 4 pm, food will begin around 6 pm and you can have refreshments all the time!
Do I need to present? No, but you’ll miss out on winning amazing prizes and a certificate acknowledging your participation.
I want to present, what should I do? Choose a topic you are passionate about, think of a way to present it (a PowerPoint, interpretive dance, a song …), create a 5 minute presentation, and you’re ready to go. Please also complete this short form: https://forms.gle/m8Y7rZnLU9xoBCj48
Who wins the prizes? The audience will vote for their favourite talks by ballot.
How much does it cost? It’s free!

We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible and feel free to email chaspostdocforum@ucd.ie with any questions.

College of Science Postdoc Coffee Mornings

The College of Science is holding a work/social space for postdoctoral researchers every second Tuesday over the summer at The Breakout Space on The Ground Floor in The Science Hub North. Coffee, tea, and pastries will be provided.

This space is meant to connect postdocs across the College of Science, provide a dedicated space for postdocs to meet each other, network and relate over the unique challenges and aspects of the role, and support each other in career development. This initiative is part of UCD’s Culturally Responsive Mentoring Scheme, working to foster a more inclusive and supportive culture within the College.

Meet-up times and dates are as follows: 20th June, 4th, 18th July and 1st, 15th, and 29th August from 10.30 am to 12.30 pm.
