Kavli Postdoc Series - The Chalk Talk #2

The Kavli Postdoc Series is a series of events that brings together Yale neuroscience postdoctoral fellows, regardless of their department affiliation, for scientific discussions, career development activities, and community building. The series will take place over multiple half-days. The series, through hands-on workshops, aims to foster a sense of community and encourage peer support, accountability, and collaborations. Topics of interest include, and are not limited to, science communication, online presence, and transition from postdoc to faculty.

The next event of the Kavli Postdoc Series will be held on Friday, October 28th, from 12-6 pm, at the Omni Hotel. Participants will learn about -and practice- the chalk talk.
