Event description
Get to know postdocs from across the country at this speed networking event!

About this event

One of the best parts of a conference is the chance to meet up with old friends or meet new people. This networking event will be an opportunity to get to know other postdocs, to make new connections and renew old ones before NPDC takes place at the end of the week!

In this lightly facilitated networking sessions, we’ll be putting people into small groups to meet people outside of their university or research field. At the end we’ll be asking you to make posters using MURAL to represent your overlapping research interests and collective experiences as postdocs from across the UK. There will be prizes up for grabs!

So, feel free to include your research areas, your hobbies, your interests, favourite food on a bad day, pet peeves, what postdocs have in common, anything which represents your group. After the posters, feel free to hang around and chat more informally in our virtual networking space, Kumospace, to keep conversations going for a further 30 minutes. Visit our conference website for a guide on how to use Kumospace.

By the end of this session, participants will be able to:

● Network with postdocs from across the UK who will be attending NPDC21

● Discuss mutual experiences of postdocs as well as different research specialisms.
