2020 Postdoctoral Fellowship Summer Seminar

WELCOME

Dear Fellows, Supervisors, and Guests,

We are delighted to have you join us at the CLIR Postdoctoral Fellows summer seminar! You will find the schedule for the entire week below. Includes session information, whether the session is for fellows, supervisors, or both, and registration links.

Sessions are held in Zoom. You must register for the sessions you are attending. You will receive an email from Zoom confirming your registration once a member of the Fellowship Team has approved your request. Additionally, we use Zoom’s waiting room feature. We recommend joining each session 3 – 5 minutes early so we can let you in and start each session on time.

Session resources will be shared through Google Drive Folders for supervisors and for fellows. If you have any questions or difficulties access the sessions or shared resources, email  postdoc@clir.org.

Kind regards,

The CLIR Postdoctoral Fellowship Team
