Research Seminars

The 2019 Postgraduate Research Seminar will be held on Friday 18 October 2019.

Seminars are an integral part of our students' degree program and attendance is compulsory for all students. POWCS runs seminars where students have an opportunity to present on the research activities undertaken in their programs. 

Supervisors are encouraged to attend, especially if their students are presenting. 

These seminars are open to all POWCS staff and students and the wider community. They are free of charge. 

The guest speaker in 2019 will be Professor Carol Pollock, Professor of Medicine, University of Sydney, Northern Clinical School and Kolling Institute of Medical Research. 


Candidature requirements:

ALL POWCS postgraduate students are expected to attend and participate in seminar discussion. Students are also required to present or prepare a poster if requested. If you have any concerns, please email the Postgraduate Coordinators, Dr Jonathan Erlich and A/Prof Kerrie McDonald

Oral presentations and posters should be geared toward a general audience who may not be familiar with their research area.

Oral presentations are expected to be 10-12 minutes long and should quickly outline the premise and goals of the research project. Progress and achievements should then be elaborated on. 

If requested to present, students will be sent formats for either PowerPoint presentations or Posters. 

A student attendance register is kept and may aid in assessing student participation and eligibility for future school scholarships and travel grants. 

Any questions about expectations or requirements can be addressed to the Postgraduate Coordinators or the School Administrator (
