PIMS Postdoc Day

  • Date: 10/25/2008

The PIMS Postdoc Day will take place on Saturday, October 25th. This will be a gathering of math postdocs with the goal of of discussing issues which are relevant to postdoctoral fellows such as:


- applying for tenure track jobs in Canada and the United States
- connecting to industry


We plan to have presentations on these topics, as well as discussions where you will be encouraged to actively participate. This is also a great opportunity to meet with other postdocs. Lunch will be provided for participants.


If you are a Math postdoc and would like to participate, please send an email to Ken Leung by clicking here, confirming your attendance, so that we may have an accurate head count for lunch. The participation deadline is October 22, 2008.
