Postdocs@Tech and the Office of Postdoctoral Services are proud to announce the:

4th Annual Postdoctoral Research Symposium
Thursday, September 21, 2017
Parker H. Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience (IBB)
Submit an Abstract!

Abstracts can be submitted here until Sept. 1, 2017.  All postdocs affiliated with Georgia Tech are eligible to submit one abstract each. Postdocs will be notified if they will present a poster or a lightning talk by Sept. 8.


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 award list as we do. A list of 2016 Postdoctoral Research Symposium Awardees can be found here.

New this year: 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.
