Join us for the 6th UCSF Postdoc Slam competition! Our popular research communication competition for postdocs is back, and we are planning for an exciting event on Tuesday, September 19, 2023, 4-6 p.m. PDT. Seven to ten UCSF postdoc finalists will present their research in three minutes or less, in language accessible to a general audience. It's a celebration not only of the finalists and contest winner, but also of postdoctoral research at UCSF and of scientific inquiry.

Postdoc Slam is organized by the Office for Postdoctoral Scholars and the Graduate Division Dean's Office, and is a featured event in UCSF's National Postdoc Appreciation Week activities.

The event will be presented for a live audience at Mission Bay, and live-streamed broadly for remote viewers, who will be able to vote for the "People's Choice" audience award. 

- the live stream link will be available here in the near future - 

Cash prizes of $4,000, $2,000, and $1,000 will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prize winners chosen by the judges. And the audience will choose the "People's Choice" winner, who will receive $750.
