New! Lightning Talks

This year, postdocs selected to give a talk will have five minutes to present their research and its significance. We're trying the lightning talk format in response to feedback from previous years that more postdocs should have the opportunity to speak at the symposium. Plus, being able to concisely explain your discoveries and their impact to a non-expert audience is a great skill to have.

Awards

The Georgia Tech Postdoctoral Research Symposium awards are the only campuswide source of travel funds available to postdocs. We are currently working to confirm the awards that will be available this year and will add to the list below as we do. A list of 2016 Postdoctoral Research Symposium Awardees can be found here. There's also a great story about postdocs who started a collaboration as a result of meeting at the symposium here.
