Communicate. Explore. Connect. 

This symposium is a great opportunity for professional development and networking within the Yale community. The goals of this event are for you to:

  • Communicate your research
  • Explore the diversity of postdoctoral research performed at Yale
  • Connect with other postdocs

This day is designed to increase the visibility of Postdoc Research at Yale. This event will focus on the diversity of our community and our contribution to the research excellence at Yale. It will be a great way for you to discover new fields of research, connect with unexpected future collaborators in other departments, and increase your network in the research community. This event gives a unique opportunity to get more out of your Yale experience than spending days and nights in the lab.


Registration is open!
