RSVP: Graduate Student & Postdoctoral Research Day '24

May 10, 2024, 9:30 am to 5:30 pm

Join UBC Language Sciences for the fifth Graduate Student and Postdoctoral Research Day on Friday, May 10th, 2024, showcasing the work of graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in the diverse fields of language sciences, in-person and virtually. 


Event Details

The theme for the panel is 'Professional Development'. We hope to present you with opportunities and potential challenges, including ways to combat them through a lengthy Q&A with our panelists (TBA) in collaborative academia and panelists in non-academic occupations. 

This year the Research Day will be hybrid and will introduce attendees to the many diverse areas of language sciences research, as well as other scholars working in different disciplines, and potentially parallel research.
