GAPS Three Minute Thesis Competition

Hi everyone,

As we announced last week, the GAPS Three Minute Thesis Competition will
be held at noon on Tuesday October 24th. Students and postdocs are invited
to give a three minute (one slide) presentation of their research (thesis
or other project) aimed at a scientifically literate non-specialist
audience (the actual audience will be your fellow GAPS members, plus three
judges from the lab).

This is a great exercise in summarising what you do, and distilling it
down to the most important and interesting essence -- very helpful in job

Additionally, there will be prizes! The top finisher in each category
(“Students (grad or co-op)" and “Postdocs”) will win an Amazon gift card
worth $100. This year will also feature a new category, “People’s Choice.”
The winner of that one, to be chosen by the audience, will go home with a
$50 Amazon gift card.

If you would like to participate in the competition, please respond to
this email with:
1. your name
2. the name of your supervisor (so we can avoid conflicts of interest in
our selection of judges)
3. whether you’re a student (grad or co-op) or postdoc
4. the title of your talk (if you have one already)

Thanks to those of you who already said you’d take part! We're looking
forward to a great competition.

Your GAPS committee
