On December 3rd I visited the Kavli Neuroscience Discovery Institute at Johns Hopkins University for a Kavli NDI-X speaker series.
During my visit I had the chance to meet faculty members as well as postdocs and students, and I presented my work on the diversity of GABAergic interneurons in the mouse perirhinal cortex.
This is a great opportunity given to postdocs to present their work and meet with faculty members of an amazing institution. The format is indeed similar to that of regular seminar series and is a very good practice for job talks at the postdoctoral or faculty level.
Other postdoctoral seminar series exists in the US and I totally recommend applying for the chance to participate in them: SPINES at NYU, SYNAPSES at Yale, and MSN at Mount Sinai.
