Health Sciences Research Week

  • Faculty Judges Needed

    Faculty volunteers are needed for assistance in judging during Research Week poster sessions. Several positions are available for each of the two sessions.

    Graduate, Medical, PharmD Student Session

    Tuesday, April 21
    1:00 - 4:00 pm

    Postdoctoral Fellows, Faculty and Staff

    Wednesday, April 22
    1:00 - 4:00 pm

    Faculty judging and feedback play a critical role for our students and staff and requires a minimal time commitment. Judges are expected to read short abstracts for each poster in advance, ask questions, and provide feedback to their assigned poster authors during the session and submit a short scoring sheet (provided) to the scoring table after visiting and making judgements. Typically, judges are asked to evaluate three-four posters per session (odd-numbered posters between 1:00-2:30 and even-numbered poster 2:30-4:00 pm) which usually takes around one hour to complete.

    Faculty available during either day are encouraged to participate.
