Post Doctoral Research Associates (PDRAs) and Research Fellows (RF) showcase


The membership of Hughes Hall represents an extraordinary breadth and depth of interests. Through a series of three showcase evenings, Post Doctoral Research Associates (PDRAs) and Research Fellows (RF) present their exciting cutting edge work through short (10 minute), accessible presentations. Whatever your own discipline, these stimulating evenings offer a chance to discover why the cross disciplinary network has always been central to the Cambridge tradition.
