A friendly reminder that the next Post Doc Lunch Club will be this coming Friday (April 1st) in 434 Barker Hall at 12:00pm. This time, we'll talk about postdoc grants; specifically, we'll hear from current NRSA and K99 recipients. If you wonder when is the best time in your postdoc to apply for a K99 and if you want to hear about successful experiences getting a grant, you should come this friday!
We will have fellows sharing about their experience getting a K99:
-Andy Mehle (Doudna Lab)- "Regulating influenza polymerase structure and function by phosphorylation"
-Michael McMurray (Thorner Lab)- "Mechanisms of assembly and inheritance of yeast septin-containing structures"
and fellows speaking about their experience getting an NRSA:
-Rosie Alegado (King Lab)- "Molecular basis of bacterial-dependent colony formation in Choanoflagellates"
-Valerie O'Shea (Berger Lab)- "Investigation of DnaB helicase loading for initiating DNA replication"
-Neal Mankad (Toste Lab)- "Catalytic amination reactions utilizing bimetallic cooperativity"
. Please RSVP if you haven't yet and if you think you may come so that we can order enough food this time!
We're also looking for people interested in getting feedback on their future project ideas during the future postdoc lunch club "incubator series" sessions (in May, June, July, etc.).
The opportunities to present to the department (“seminar series”) will likely begin this summer starting June.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
