We’re looking for speakers for the 2014 Postdoc/Grad Student Seminar Series and you’re invited to present!
The Postdoc/Grad Student Seminar Series is an informal research seminar by and for Broad-affiliated academic trainees. Every seminar features two speakers, and lots of pizza!

Benefits of giving a presentation
- Practice your public speaking in front of a supportive group
- Have the opportunity to have your talk videotaped for your eyes only and receive constructive feedback on your presentation technique
- Introduce your research to a new audience
- Receive useful feedback on your work from your peers in an informal atmosphere
- Good karma points!
Guidelines for Presentations
Who can present?
Any Broad-affiliated academic trainee is invited to present. Past speakers have come from labs and platforms all across the Broad Institute and partner institutions.
The seminar is open to all Broad-affiliated postdocs and grad students.
What can you present?
The goal of the seminar is to discuss issues that are raised in a relatively brief presentation of a statistical issue or a research project. Each talk is ~25 minutes and the audience is encouraged to ask questions during presentations.
Presentations of research in different stages of development are encouraged:
- Early stage projects in which the presenter is searching for suggestions on how to proceed.
- Ongoing research, in which a talk provides valuable discussion for research design issues.
- Research near completion
