Opportunity to Present at Chicago State University

Modified: September 21, 2015

For over 10 years Chicago State University has been inviting Chicago area faculty, postdocs and advanced graduate students to present a research seminar during a Monday afternoon Research Seminar Series at Chicago State University.  The purpose of the seminar series is two-fold:  (1) to introduce advanced undergraduate and masters' students to life science research; (2) to keep faculty up-to-date with cutting edge research despite a lack of funds to bring in speakers from out of town.

This seminar series also benefits the speakers as well as it provides an opportunity to practice their presentation skills and get a look at life in a teaching-oriented state university.  Chicago State University has a biology faculty of ~15 who do a significant amount of research despite relatively heavy teaching loads; they are happy to speak with postdoc or advanced graduate student speakers about life beyond a postdoc.

The seminars take place at 4pm on Mondays.  Chicago State is located at 95th and King Dr/Cottage Grove on the South Side (accessible by public transportation or a short drive from the Dan Ryan on 95th Street).

If you are interested in giving a seminar at CSU, please email Kevin Swier, Professor of Biology, with a brief (few sentences) description of your current position and the research you are doing.
