Postdoc Open Mic Night @ Bella Vista 

Wednesdays, 2016 | August 17th, September 14th, October 19th, November 16th

Join us for our 2nd season of Open Mic Night! This event fosters interaction among the people doing hands-on research in the San Diego area and local businesses, biotechs, and the general public.

Guest judges give brief talks (five-minutes each) to introduce their current ventures, followed by five-minute talks by postdocs. Speakers are selected from submitted abstracts (submit below!) by a committee formed by the organizing postdoc associations.

Talks are aimed at those with a limited scientific background, but contain sufficient detail to be of interest to scientists. Judges select winners based on their ability to communicate to a wide audience.

Time: 6 p.m. - 8 p.m.
Location: Bella Vista Caffe (alcove area near the Sanford Consortium auditorium)

For more information, contact postdocopenmicnight@gmail.com 

The best speakers will be selected to give a talk at a Bella Vista networking night in front of a general audience, so speakers should bear this in mind when preparing their talks. Please submit a 250 word abstract to summarize the subject of your talk.
