Grad Café 7

June 5, 2020 at 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM

Location:Zoom meeting
Audience:Current Students

We invite all Carleton graduate students and postdocs to join our regular online Zoom chat, Grad Café. Each one-hour session, we’ll cover various topics relating to graduate student and postdoc life, with a focus on thesis writing and professional development. David Lafferty, PhD, and Karim Abuawad, PhD will be your hosts. Discussion will be informal, so feel free to bring tea, coffee or a snack to your computer or device and join in.

Grad Exchange also provides an opportunity for you to connect with other graduate students and postdocs in the Carleton community. Please note that these sessions do not count toward pedagogical training hours for TAs.

Topics of discussion:

  • Explaining the significance of your research in grant applications
  • How to read a book or article


Moving forward, we will be sending the Zoom meeting invites for the Grad Café sessions to our new Graduate and Postdoc Professional Development mailing list. You can register for the mailing list here. If you do not wish to subscribe to the list, but would rather have me email you the Zoom invite for this session, just let me know at
