Judges Needed

Volunteers are needed for assistance in judging during Research Week poster sessions. 

Graduate, Medical, PharmD Student Session

Tuesday, April 17
1:30 - 3:30 pm 

Postdoctoral Fellows, Faculty and Staff

Wednesday, April 18
1:30 - 3:30 pm 

Judging and feedback play a critical role for our students and staff and requires a minimal time commitment. Judges are expected to read short abstracts for each poster in advance, ask questions of the presenters during the poster session, and submit a short scoring sheet prior to leaving the poster session.  Judges may also provide feedback to the presenters either in person or on the score sheet. Typically, judges are asked to evaluate no more than three or four posters (odd-numbered posters between 1:30-2:30 and even-numbered poster 2:30-3:30 pm) per poster session.  Judging should not require more than an hour commitment.

Faculty, postdoctoral research scholars/fellows, residents/fellow physicians, staff and graduate students* are eligible to judge posters.  Judges available during either day are encouraged to participate. 

If you are interested in judging, please e-mail sonya-housholder@uiowa.edu for more information or complete our judging survey.

*Graduate students are required to be in the final two years of doctoral study.
