2017 Symposium Full Page

The Society of Postdoctoral Scholars at the University of Kentucky is hosting a symposium to feature the work of postdoctoral scholars and graduate students in Kentucky and surrounding areas. The event will feature a keynote presentation by Dr. James Gould (Director of Office of Postdoctoral Fellows at Harvard Medical school), oral presentations by postdocs from UK and surrounding universities, a poster session, and a panel discussion on alternative careers.

The symposium will allow for the exchange of ideas across a broad range of fields, and abstract submissions are welcome from any discipline. Postdocs from Kentucky and Ohio are especially encouraged to submit abstracts. Graduate students are also welcome to participate.
The objective of this symposium is to share research across many different fields. Talks should be general and accessible to an audience outside of the speaker's area of specialization. Each talk is allotted 15 minutes, which includes time for questions. There is an option to present digital posters, or short films about your research on a laptop.

For more information, and if you wish to participate, please contact our organizers at uk.sops@gmail.com
To register to attend, and/or to submit an abstract for a talk or a poster, please visit: tiny.cc/SOPS2017
Abstracts submission deadline is Wednesday, May 17, 2017.

There is no charge to present at or attend the symposium. Food at lunch and coffee breaks will be provided. Expenses for the symposium are funded by the UK Office of Vice President of Research, UK Student Government Association, UK Graduate School, and UK College of Medicine.


Talks will be held in the William T. Young Library/UKAA auditorium (Room 1-62, South Wing).
The poster presentation will be held in the Multipurpose Room 108C.
