3 Minutes Postdoc Slam 2018

It’s a month away until 3 Minutes Postdoc Slam 2018, back by popular demand! Those who have just learned about the event – welcome!  This is a speed conference to show off your cool research at UBC using only a single slide! In the previous years we had a lot of fun, while learning so much about what interesting stuff others are working on! And what’s more – the winners of the competition will bring home some shiny cash prizes.

The event detail for this year is as follows:

When? : June 28th, 2018

  • 3-5PM (3MPS Competition)
  • 5PM- (Reception)

Where? : Michael Smith Laboratories (Next to UBC Bookstore)

  • Room #102 (3MPS Competition)
  • Room #101 (Reception)

How to register? : Online registration is open at:

The registration is for anyone intending to attend to the event (we’d like to gauge the catering size). Those who are willing to present, please indicate it on the registration form.

Although the competition is open to postdocs only, we openly invite undergrads and grad students to register and attend.

The keynote speaker this year is Dr. Dave Ng. Dr. Ng is Director of the Advanced Molecular Biology Laboratory (AMBL). He is a geneticist, science educator, science literacy academic, part time writer, and faculty based at the University of British Columbia. His current research interests revolve around children’s identity around concepts of science and creativity, as well as game based learning of science concepts.

As usual, we’ll have a coffee break during the competition and a reception after the competition. This is an excellent networking opportunity to meet with the fellow postdocs over some appies and refreshments!
