Interdepartmental Postdoctoral Seminars
The Interdepartmental Postdoctoral Seminar series, sponsored by the Einstein Postdoctoral Association and the Belfer Institute, provides postdoctoral fellows the opportunity to present their scientific work to an audience of other postdocs. These informal pizza-and-beer sessions allow for feedback and scientific discussions with other postdocs, and are the perfect forum for practicing for job talks or presentations at meetings.
The Einstein chapter of Toastmasters International offers postdoctoral fellows the chance to work on their public speaking skills. Toastmasters International is a nonprofit organization with chapters at many academic institutions, whose goal is to enhance the public speaking skills of its members.
Sponsored by the Belfer Institute and the graduate division, the Einstein Toastmasters chapter offers a supportive environment in which to work on the art of public speaking; the sessions are held twice a month on Monday evenings.
