The WOWTALK (What’s Our Work) Series brings together colleagues and students from disciplines associated with GW's Science and Engineering Hall—and related fields—to present new research and share ideas. These short talks (15 minutes each) are designed to introduce members of the GW community to current and exciting research projects undertaken in labs in the SEH, to initiate discussion, collaborate, share expertise, and to promote research performed in the SEH and at GW.

Crucial Input Needed - Please Volunteer

Dear Colleagues,

As you are all aware, there is an ongoing effort to improve the research ecosystem at GW. Volunteers are now being sought for the second phase of this faculty-driven process. I would urge you to reach out to us at ccasres@gwu.edu to volunteer for, or suggest someone for, one of the following committees:

1) Workforce Development
2) Operation and Utilization of Shared Facilities
3) Resource Allocation
4) Big Data and High Performance Computing Infrastructure

As the largest school at GW, it is vital that we have input in all of these areas, but, to date, we only have very few CCAS faculty volunteers. Please reach out to us by Friday August 30th. We really appreciate your willingness to serve in this crucial capacity.

I wish you all a productive and smooth beginning to the semester!

Best wishes,

Evie Downie

Anyone engaging in research or scholarly activity at GW including, under- and graduate students, administrative staff, researchers, postdocs and faculty, is encouraged to attend.

The GW Postdoc Association (GWPA) will host a career panel with speakers that can advise GW postdocs on both industry and academic careers, a workshop that will teach how to perfect a short “elevator pitch” about research, and a round of poster presentations by GW postdocs.

Submissions for poster presentations are welcome; prizes will be awarded for the top three posters.

Please nominate outstanding mentors that are shaping careers of postdocs for the GWPA Mentorship Award. GWPA wants to recognize these deserving colleagues.

Registration and Nomination Deadline: September 1, 2019

Date: Thursday, September 19, 2019
Time: 10:30 AM – 4:00 PM
