Postdoc Seminar Series

Beginning in June 2005, Postdoctoral Enhancement Programs initiated a seminar series for postdoctoral fellows and associates at the University. The series aims to provide the postdoctoral community with information and resources above and beyond that provided through individual departments and principal investigators (PIs). Below is information on past and future seminars. Where available, links have been provided to materials presented by speakers (*.pdf). If you are a postdoctoral fellow or associate and would like to suggest a seminar topic, please e-mail postdoc-at-virginia.edu.

All seminars are held in Jordan Hall, Rooms 2ABC from 12:00 noon to 1:00 pm. Lunch is provided.
