Date: March 2, 2015
Time: 5:30 – 8:00pm
Location: GSS Ballroom, UBC Graduate Student Centre, 6371 Crescent Road, Point Grey campus

In partnership with the Career Night Event of the UBC Centre of Blood Research, I will be an industry mentor for the upcoming Postdoc Career Night, an opportunity for UBC postdoctoral fellows to interact with industry members who will share their perspective and answer questions. The speed mentoring session will be followed by a wine and cheese networking event.

To learn more about the panelists, view the Industry Mentor Biographies.

Our mentoring session is a fun, interactive event in which mentees meet their chosen expert mentors during a round table discussion session for 20 minutes at a time. Mentors from across many fields and training backgrounds will be participating, to offer brief, group and one-on-one advice to postdocs. We will have several rotations so that mentees are able to meet as many mentors as possible.

The round table mentoring session itself will be approximately until 6:45 PM, at which time we will be hosting a wine & cheese event to give Mentors & Mentees an opportunity to interact further in a relaxed informal atmosphere.

To register, visit the Postdoctoral Fellows Office Registration Page.

This event provides UBC PDFs with the opportunity to meet face-to-face with experienced industry members and in return for them to engage with UBC’s rising star scholars.
