The Centre for Marine Science hosts a regular seminar series aimed at PhD and Honours students but open to all. Our seminars aim to showcase the breadth of student research within the University, encompassing all Schools and Institutes linked to CMS. They provide a great opportunity for Honours and PhD students to practice presenting their research in a small, friendly environment and for everyone to learn about the marine research being conducted at UQ.

3 seminars are held each semester, typically on Tuesdays at 1:00pm in room 257 Goddard Building. Special seminars featuring visiting researchers are added to the schedule when the opportunity arises. Detailed information about upcoming presenters and topics will be posted here once confirmed.

If you would like to present in the future, please get in contact via email:  Gabriella Scatà or Pam Engelberts
