What is Faculty Corner?
Do you ever wonder what the joys and challenges are of being a professor? How best to prepare for a tenure track job? How to achieve work-life balance? What the best practices are in running a lab? If you wish to learn the answers to these questions from diverse faculty and want to meet and network with scientists outside of your home departments, then wait no more!

Our monthly “Faculty Corner” is a series of robust live interviews and professional development talks from our expert UM faculty on issues surrounding academic job preparation, interview and negotiation, lab/time/project/personnel management, funding, publication, and, importantly, work-life balance.

1 session on June 24, 2019
The Career and Professional Development Team in the Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies is excited to bring back Postdoc180, a competition for postdocs to communicate their scientific research with one slide and 180 seconds.
Please join us for a primer and introduction to Postdoc180 to learn more about the competition and to learn tips and tricks for communicating your science clearly and succinctly in just 180 seconds.
Go Postdocs! Go SciComm! Go Blue!

Postdoc180 Overview:
Postdocs across the Medical School will prepare and submit videos of themselves giving their Postdoc180 speeches. These videos will be evaluated by a panel of expert judges from several biomedical disciplines to select finalists.
Finalists will deliver their speeches during the finale of the Postdoc180 Competition on Tuesday, September 17 at 4:00 pm in Kahn Auditorium in the Biomedical Science Research Building (BSRB). This event will be part of the annual Postdoc Appreciation Week celebrations.
