3MP – Three Minute Postdoctoral Speaking Competition Announced

July 12, 2023 — 

The Faculty of Graduate Studies (FGS) at UM is excited to announce the launch of a 3-Minute Speaking Competition exclusively for post-doctoral fellows called 3MP. This exciting event provides an exceptional platform for accomplished scholars to present their research in a concise and compelling manner.

The competition aims to challenge participants to distill their complex research findings into a clear and engaging three-minute presentation. This time limit mirrors the popular “Three-Minute Thesis” format that has gained attention worldwide, encouraging scholars to articulate their ideas effectively and engage non-expert audiences. By condensing their work, post-doctoral fellows can captivate diverse audiences while conveying the significance and impact of their research.

Dr. Kelley Main, the dean of the Faculty of Graduate studies, expressed enthusiasm about the competition, stating, “This competition offers a unique opportunity for post-doctoral fellows to showcase their groundbreaking work and share it with a broader audience. It not only hones their communication skills but also enables them to engage with colleagues from different disciplines, fostering collaboration and the exchange of ideas.”

The 3-Minute Speaking Competition for post-doctoral fellows (3MP) is scheduled to take place on September 22, 2023.The event will be open to the public, providing an excellent opportunity for students, faculty, and members of the community to witness innovative research across disciplines.

This competition not only acknowledges the impressive accomplishments of post-doctoral fellows but also celebrates the concise presentation of complex ideas. FGS is proud to host this event to highlight their innovative research.

Interested post-doctoral fellows are encouraged to visit the university’s website for detailed guidelines and submission instructions. The deadline to apply is August 7, 2023, and a limited number of participants will be selected based on the quality of their submission.
