The goal of the University of Florida Postdoctoral Research Symposium is to promote the research of UF postdocs and to provide avenues for continued professional development as set outlined by the National Postdoctoral Association (NPA).  Communication Skills and Professionalism are two of the six Core Competencies the NPA (National Postdoctoral Association) promotes as critical to postdoc success.  Postdocs in both oral and poster presentations will be judged on how well they can convey their research to an educated lay audience.
