Brain Science External Postdoc Seminar Series
The Carney Institute's Brain Science External Postdoc Seminar Series (BrainExPo) showcases the work of advanced postdoctoral scholars from around the world. The goal of this series is to: 1) provide a platform for early-career scientists to share their research and network with Carney's brain science community, and 2) provide an opportunity for the institute's community of faculty, postdoctoral researchers and graduate and undergraduate students to hear about new innovative research.
Any postdoctoral researcher conducting brain science research may apply to participate in the seminar series. Selected speakers will present a research seminar and have the opportunity to meet with Brown University faculty, postdoctoral researchers and graduate students. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, seminars and meetings will be held online.
Applications for the 2020-2021 BrainExPo seminar series will be accepted until October 31, 2020. Seminars will be scheduled throughout the 2020-2021 academic year. To apply, please fill out the application form. You will be required to provide a 300-word research summary and an updated CV (up to three pages). Applications from women, minorities and international postdocs are strongly encouraged.

- E. Javier López Soto, postdoctoral research associate in the Lipscombe Lab
- Chen Ming, postdoctoral research associate in the Simmons Lab
- Rajan Thakur, postdoctoral research associate in the O'Connor-Giles Lab
