October 03, 2016

One of the biggest challenges facing postdocs and senior graduate students is the negotiation of lab/fieldwork, writing, and publishing. Such a negotiation involves not only dealing with the tasks that comprise each activity, but also the task of how to make each activity relate or "speak" to one another.

Paul Kingsbury, Associate Professor from the Geography Department, will highlight practices that can lead to successful lab/fieldwork, writing, and publishing, as well as ways in which these three areas of research can productively inform one another.

Date/Time: Tuesday, October 18 from 11:30am - 1pm
Location: Bennett Library 7010 (Research Commons)

This session is part of the Brown Bag Lunch Series, offered in partnership between the SFU Postdoctoral Fellows Association and the APEX Professional Development Program within the Office of Graduate Studies and Postdoctoral Fellows.

Please feel free to bring your lunch with you as we explore this topic informally over lunch hour. Coffee will be provided.
