Colloquia, Lunch Talks & Morning Tea

Giving a talk at Carnegie? Please read the following Information for Speakers.

Local Colloquium Series

The Colloquium Series is organized by Tony Piro and Shannon Patel.  Colloquia are open to the general public and are held Tuesdays  at 11:00 a.m.  in William T. Golden Auditorium. Consult the schedule for a list of speakers and titles. You can also subscribe using Google Calendar.

Lunch Talks

Lunch talks  are organized by Andrew Benson. They are held Fridays  at 12:15 p.m.  in the William T. Golden Auditorium. Consult the lunch talk schedule for a list of speakers and titles. Bring lunch.

The Fall series of our lunch talks focus on gradiate students and postdocs who are actively seeking Postdoctoral Fellowship positions. If you are interested in giving a lunch talk, or if you'd like to nominate your graduate student or postdoc for a lunch talk, please use this form (or alternatively you can e-mail Andrew Benson directly).

Please note that, due to Covid-19, lunch talks will be held virtually in Fall 2020. When in-person talks resume, Carnegie Observatories has funding designated for supporting the travel costs of Black, Latinx, and Indigenous visitors. If this is applicable, please check the box in the nomination form, or note this in your email. (Note that speakers are welcome to give a remote talk even if in-person talks have resumed.)

Recordings of the colloquia and lunch talks are available for Carnegie scientists here.
