About

How-to Talks by Postdocs is a series of virtual talks for the general VCU health sciences community, presented by postdocs. These are not seminar talks, but an opportunity for postdocs to hone their science communication skills by informing the public about a topic related to the health sciences. Each How-to Talk is about one-hour.

The Fall 2021 How-to Talks by Postdocs series has concluded with the awarding of the VCU Science Communication Award to Arnethea Sutton, Ph.D. for her presentation “#AcademicTwitter – Leveraging Twitter to Build Networks and for All Things Research”.  Watch the video here.

Applications for the next series will be accepted beginning in April, 2022. Please refer to the “For Postdocs” tab for more information on applying to be part of the series and competing for the VCU Science Communication Award.

For a full list of the 2021 talks, visit the  Past Talks page.

All members of the VCU community and Virginia Biotechnology Research Park are welcome to attend. If you are a postdoc interested in applying to speak, please visit our Application Details section.

How-to Talks by Postdocs is brought to you by the Health Sciences Library (VCU Libraries), C. Kenneth and Dianne Wright Center for Clinical and Translational Research, and the VCU Postdoctoral Association.
