Post-doctoral Research & Career Symposium
Post-doctoral Research & Career Symposium
The Postdoctoral Research and Career Symposium is an annual event that showcases the research of the Energy Science Area's postdoctoral researchers, creates networking opportunities, and enables industry and government leaders to connect with and recruit from the nation's top scientific and engineering talent.
The Energy Sciences Area seeks solutions to the global energy-related challenges that impact our planet through a deeper understanding of the interactions between energy and matter. Under the auspices of the Energy Sciences Area are four divisions, the Advanced Light Source, Chemical Sciences, Materials Sciences, and the Molecular Foundry.
The Energy Sciences Area Post-doctoral symposium provides the Area's postdocs the opportunity to present their research, to connect with each other, and to network with representatives from local industry
Postdocs may register as an attendee or sign up to give an oral or poster presentation. The deadline to register to be considered for an oral presentaion and to receive the additional benefits of headshots and business cards is May 15, 2018.
After May 15, 2018, postdocs may still register and sign up to give a poster presentation. Late registrants can also still submit a CV or resume to be included in the booklet we are distributing to our industry participants.
Other Berkeley Lab scientists and staff may register as attendees only. Attendee registration closes May 31, 2018.
The Symposium seeks abstracts for presentations that are aligned with Berkeley Lab’s mission of fostering groundbreaking fundamental science that enables transformational solutions for energy and environment challenges, using interdisciplinary teams and by creating advanced new tools for scientific discovery. Abstracts may be submitted at the time of registration.
Posters should be printed in landscape format with maximum dimensions of 3 ft x 4 ft. Click here for a ready-to-use poster template (2 ft x 4 ft).
We are collecting resumés and CVs to distribute to Industry exhibitors and sponsors. If you would like your resumé included, please fill out the resumé template upload it to the resumes and business cards form.
