I've got invited to a lab seminar. I am so excited and nervous, too.
I applied for the same research group before, and unfortunately, I was not selected after short presentation and interview at a conference.
Instead, the PI (call A) recommends me to the chief of the research center and another PI (call B) saying they have one open position. So, B invited me to come to Switzerland (French speaking area) and join the lab meeting.
PI said the entire members attend the meeting usually and I have 30 minutes for a presentation. I guess at least 15 people will be at the seminar.
So now I am considering that the presentation consists of 1) Research during my master: I have three published articles in peer-review journals (first author), one article published in a peer-reviewed journal (co-author) and a couple of studies under revision and ongoing research. I am going to categorize them into two themes and summarize the main objectives and results. 2) Research skills 3) Research interests related to the project.
It is not just I introduce the research to other people in an international conference. I would like to become a part of them, and there has to be some evaluation as a prospective PhD student and co-worker.
But, I have never been in the position. I would be grateful if anyone gives me some advice on the presentation. I don’t want to lose the opportunity again.
