Promoting scientific exchange and inquiry among early-career neuroscientists.

We are pleased to announce the Zuckerman Institute Postdoc Seminars (ZIPS), a seminar series designed by and for neuroscience postdocs at Columbia.
ZIPS provides a casual forum for postdocs to present projects in various stages of development. Each session will feature 20-minute talks by two postdocs working in different fields of neuroscience. Following each talk, a 10-minute Q&A period will allow the speakers to receive feedback on issues ranging from style and clarity of presentation to experimental design and future project directions. Both early- and late-stage postdocs are encouraged to utilize ZIPS to get wide-ranging feedback from fellow Columbia neuroscientists. All members of the Columbia community, including faculty, staff, postdocs and students, are invited to attend.

Monthly seminars will be held on Fridays at 4:00 pm at the Jerome L. Greene Science Center on Columbia University’s Manhattanville campus. Light refreshments will be available prior to each seminar, starting at 3:30 pm.

Please contact if you have any questions or comments.
