Call for Research Buffet speakers!

A message from Natalie on the Research Buffet, a joint MCR/SCR event on the 28th of November:

Hi everyone,

In addition to our Research and Cake events, there is an upcoming Research Buffet on the 28th of November. This is a joint event with the SCR and will be a good opportunity to present your research or just find out what your fellow postgrads are up to.

We need up to 3 speakers for the event, so please let me know if you are interested. I realise that those of you who have just started your postgrad studies (me included!) might not have any research to present yet, so this is a call-out for those who do: come share your knowledge!

If you for some reason are not convinced, let me add that the event is free for speakers. :)

If you want to give a talk at the event, please email me (Natalie) your name and an abstract of the research you will be presenting.

More information on the actual event to follow.
