“Experimentalism and Tradition in 1960s Jazz,” “Nutrient Economics,” and “Creative Turbulence: Experiments in Art and Physics” will be among the sessions at a “Future of Research” symposium to be held Thurs., May 21, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. at New York University’s Hemmerdinger Hall, Silver Center (100 Washington Square East/enter at 31 Washington Place).

The event, the inaugural NYU PoIntS (New York University Postdocs Interdisciplinary Symposium), is part of the “Future of Research” symposia that are taking place across the country this year. NYU PoIntS will feature research by postdoctoral fellows as well as plenary sessions on crowd-sourcing research funding, the current science career pipeline, and the best practices for ensuring quality research results. The day will close with two panels of experts discussing the challenges postdoctoral researchers face in the current research environment and non-academic career options for scientists and researchers.

Register for the event in advance or on location the day of the symposium. Space is limited. For more information, contact Niki Athanasiadou at 718.536.4014 or futureofscienceNYU@gmail.com. Reporters wishing to attend must RSVP to James Devitt, NYU’s Office of Public Affairs, at 212.998.6808 or james.devitt@nyu.edu.

EDITOR’S NOTE:
About the “Future of Research”
To address the problems of modern science and to join the emerging nationwide discussion about necessary science policy reforms, postdocs from academic institutions across the country are organizing a series of Future of Research (FOR) symposia in their respective cities. FOR aims to make science more accessible, efficient, and connected for scientists, policymakers, and the public. For more on the “Future of Research” symposia, visit http://futureofresearch.org/.

About the Inaugural NYU PoIntS
In keeping with NYU’s vision of being “in and of the city,” NYU postdoctoral researchers across disciplines have brought the Future of Research discussion to New York City, a city with a thriving research community that is home to numerous top-tier laboratories and research institutes, in the form of NYU PoIntS.
