PSA seeks poster judges

Poster judging to be held October 8

The Postdoctoral Society of Argonne is seeking volunteers to assist in judging of postdoc research posters during the 2015 Annual Postdoctoral Research and Career Symposium at the Building 240 TCS Conference Center, from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 8, 2015.

Each judge will be assigned posters to evaluate anonymously, and all judging forms will be collected and tallied following the conclusion of the Poster Presentations Session. The three posters earning the highest average score will receive the Robert G. Sachs Award for Excellence for Outstanding Poster Presentation, along with a cash prize. Winners will be announced during the Closing Remarks at 4:30 p.m. at the conclusion of the Symposium.

Due to the wide diversity of research ongoing at Argonne, posters will be judged on quality of presentation, appearance and on a presenter’s overall presentation skills. Postdocs have been instructed that they will be presenting their work to a general technical audience and thus we hope to encourage a high level of cross-divisional and cross-directorate participation.

Judging should take 5-10 minutes per poster. Those interested in judging should email Jessica Linville (ES) at [email protected]. Even if you are not interested in judging posters, we highly encourage you to invest a few minutes and interact with the Postdocs presenting their work during the Poster Presentation Session.

The 2015 Annual Postdoctoral Research and Career Symposium takes place Thursday, October 8, 2014. Visit the Postdoctoral blog for details.
