Gathering for Postdoctoral Science (GPS)
The monthly GPS meeting, organized by the Postdoc Society, gives Cedars-Sinai postdocs an opportunity to present their research and network with other postdocs.
National Postdoctoral Appreciation Week (NPAW)
Every September institutions across the country, including Cedars-Sinai, celebrate the achievements and contributions of postdocs. In 2013 we celebrated NPAW with an open house event (featuring resources, freebies, a prize drawing and a birthday cake to celebrate the Postdoc Society’s 4th birthday), a networking social event at a local bar, and a seminar on careers in industry.
In 2014, NPAW will be September 15-19.
Malaniak Awards for Excellence in Postdoctoral Research
The Malaniak Awards are an annual competition for Cedars-Sinai postdocs involved in basic and laboratory-based translational research studies.
Cedars-Sinai Research Day
Research Day is an annual institution-wide event profiling the basic science, clinical and translational research conducted at Cedars-Sinai. Research Day consists of a plenary seminar featuring an eminent scientist, followed by a poster session to enable Cedars-Sinai postdocs, graduate students and other members of the research community to present their work.
Previous Research Day speakers were Dr. Mark Davis (Stanford, 2010), Dr. Richard Lifton (Yale, 2011), Nobel Prize winner Dr. David Baltimore (Caltech, 2012), and Dr. Joan Brugge (Harvard, 2013).
