SFU Postdoctoral Research Day 2017

From Curiosity to Community Engagement




Research is born as a single thought. A question, an idea, a cartoonish lightbulb. It can come from exploring the work of those who came before, from random inspirations around us, or sheer curiosity. From these quaint origins arises new knowledge and a better understanding of ourselves or the world of which we are a part. Pushing forward and applying this new knowledge leads to technological and social evolution that can benefit all members of society. From the smallest acorn can grow the mightiest oak.

SFU postdoctoral fellows are immersed in every step of the research process. Some of us scratch our heads and ask “Why… .” Some of us sit and whisper “What if… .” Some of us proclaim “How can I make this benefit… .” All of us push the boundary of what is known and has been done before, and Research Day 2017 will celebrate these achievements.

The day will include talks, posters, exhibits, inventions and more, all presented by members of the SFU postdoctoral community! We also feature a keynote address by Dr. Pascal Haegeli, from SFU's School of Resource and Environmental Management (REM), on avalanche research and community engagement.

Watch the talks, explore the exhibits, be part of the community. Come and learn about how SFU Postdocs are changing the world!

All postdocs, research associates, graduate students, faculty and interested members of the community are welcome.

SFU Postdoc Research Day will be held on Thursday, March 30, 2017 at the Burnaby Campus, in the Big Data Hub theatre, ASB 10900 (formerly known as IRMACS Theatre). This event aligns with the SFU Strategic Research Plan's objective to recruit and retain outstanding research fellows.
