 +**Description/​Motivation:​** \\
 +The Graduate Student/​Postdoc Seminar (GSPS) is a venue where grads and postdocs can give talks in a supportive environment. The topics of these talks can be anything from their own research (either completed, commencing, or in progress),​​ career advancement and advice, pedagogy talks, practice talks (qual presentations,​ job talks, etc.), department updates, practical skills (programming,​ proposal writing, taxes, personal finance, etc.) or really anything at all!
 +
 +Broadly, the goals of GSPS are:  
 +    * To promote community between students and postdocs  ​
 +    * To practice speaking and discussing your research  ​
 +    * To build confidence asking questions  ​
 +    * To Learn about topics outside your own research  ​
 +    * To impart practical knowledge
 +    * To share fun impractical knowledge
 +    * To be sociable!
 +
 +**//GSPS is regaining its footing after a year of remote working and the oversubscription of classrooms in Spring 2022. More recently it has been primarily a social event, but will hopefully shift back towards more regular talks and discussions.//​**
