Ethel Browne Harvey
Postdoctoral Seminar Series

The Society for Developmental Biology Ethel Browne Harvey Postdoctoral Seminar Series was established to highlight the work of our outstanding postdoctoral members, providing a platform for those members who will soon be going on the job market. Speaker selection will represent the breadth of diversity in the Society, including gender, race, ethnicity, type of institution, geographic location, and research organism. 

Day and Time
Second Friday of the month at 3:00 pm ET. Next seminar is September 10, 2021.

The one-hour virtual seminars feature two postdoc speakers giving 20-minute talks followed by 10 minutes of Q&A. All seminars will be recorded and available for a limited time. Recordings will be posted the Monday following the seminar (except for holidays).

Postdoc members of the Society for Developmental Biology (2021 dues paid) are eligible to apply to be a speaker. Deadline: Monday, August 16, 2021, 11:59 PM ET.
