COVID-19 has forced the world to shift on its axis. During normal times, there would have been an opportunity for new postdocs to meet in person with existing research, new research, and administrative staff. As an alternative there will now be a “Meet and Greet” hosted online on October 14 and 16.
Each new post-doc will be given a maximum of 10 minutes to introduce themselves to the PI Community. The time will be used to tell us a little bit about themselves and to showcase their current research. These presentations are very casual and should not be misconstrued as formal talks. There will be a 90 minute + session on both days starting at 12:00 and ending around 13:30 EDT. Additionally, there will be an opportunity to socialize with all staff at the Friday Social on October 16 at 16:00 EDT. Faculty members will be present at various tables to answer any questions the new postdocs may have about Perimeter.
Territorial Land Acknowledgement
Perimeter Institute acknowledges that it is situated on the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee, and Neutral peoples.
Perimeter Institute is located on the Haldimand Tract. After the American Revolution, the tract was granted by the British to the Six Nations of the Grand River and the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation as compensation for their role in the war and for the loss of their traditional lands in upstate New York. Of the 950,000 acres granted to the Haudenosaunee, less than 5 percent remains Six Nations land. Only 6,100 acres remain Mississaugas of the Credit land.
We thank the Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee, and Neutral peoples for hosting us on their land.
