For the next Nerd Nite event on Tuesday, May 12th at 7PM at the Mint on Pico Blvd., we’ve secured seats for a few postdocs at a booth with the featured speaker: Brent Sherwood, Space Architect. Brent will be discussing ten cool new NASA mission concepts. If you’re interested, read on.
Nerd Nite is a monthly event featuring fun talks tailored for a general audience and presented in a relaxed and casual atmosphere (full event description). Event tickets ($10) can be purchased though the event website which also includes summaries of this month’s presentations and more information about Brent Sherwood. Tickets for the April event sold out over a week in advance.
For the event on May 12th, Brent Sherwood has graciously offered to seat a few LA-area postdocs with him at his booth for informal discussion between talks. To inquire about this opportunity, please contact SoPS Outreach Co-chair Anjie Zhen at azhen at mednet dot ucla dot edu. Note that you will be responsible for purchasing your own ticket to the event as well as any food or drink. Preference will be given to postdocs that indicate that they have never attended Nerd Nite before.
We’re also looking for postdocs interested in speaking at future Nerd Nite events. If this could be you, write us at outreach at postdoc dot ucla dot edu with a 2-3 sentence summary of your proposed topic.
