2016 NRAO Postdoctoral Symposium

by Davis Murphy last modified Mar 04, 2016 by Jessica Utley

The 12th annual Postdoctoral Science Symposium will be held March 28 - 29, 2016 at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory in Green Bank, West Virginia.  The annual symposium brings together the resident and non-resident Jansky fellows and NRAO postdocs in order to highlight their current research, share ideas, and establish collaborations.  Local NRAO scientific and engineering staff are also encouraged to attend.

We are pleased to have a former Jansky Fellow (2002), Dr. Rachel Osten, Assistant Astronomer and Deputy Project Scientist for the James Webb Space Telescope at Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI), as our keynote speaker this year.
