All Postdocs are kindly invited to participate in this event and to present their research in a 3-minute thesis talk and/or as a poster.

Late-stage PhD students, Postdoc Supervisors and other interested people of the Dalhousie community are also very welcome to attend the Research Day.

If you would like to support us in the preparation of the event or during the Research Day itself, please contact us via dps@dal.ca. Your support is much appreciated.
