Postgraduates! Don't miss Synergising Non-Aligned Centres of Knowledge (SNACK) Club, 6pm Friday 12 February 2016.
In the first part of the evening, in Room IF 4.31/33, postdoctoral researchers Chris Banks, Petros Papapanagiotou, Rosa Filgueira and Gustav Henter will share their experiences of academia.
Participants can enjoy pizza and beer afterwards, in MF2.
One of the organisers of SNACK Club is Daniel Duma, who is studying for a PhD in the Institute for Language, Cognition and Computation.
“Several Institutes and Centres for Doctoral Training have similar events, with interesting talks followed by networking but our aim is to bring together postgrad students from different institutes and centres across Informatics.
“Our last meeting was about internships. Eight speakers described their recent experiences of internships at Google, Microsoft, Oracle and Samsung. This one is about getting an insight from people who followed the academic route after their PhDs. “There is no registration necessary for attendees, just turn up on the day.”
