McDonald Lunchtime Seminars

The McDonald Seminar Series was developed as a platform for post-doctoral researchers to share their work with colleagues. This year the series will also host a number of workshops in order to provide mentoring and support on a range of topics. These sessions and the talks are open to anyone to attend. At the end of the seminar series, on the 1st December, there will be a day-long forum for post-docs to showcase their research.
