Grad Student + Postdoc Spotlight

Our graduate students and postdoctoral fellows are often involved in exciting events or projects — both on and off campus.

We'd like to help promote the interesting things you're doing as a part of your graduate student life, something that's adjacent to the work you're doing as a grad student or postdoc, or ways SFU grad students can connect with each other.

Our aim is to help you invite other SFU graduate students involved, highlight your achievements, and even provide ways for you to connect with others who might be engaging in similar research.
