We are expanding to Evanston!
Join us for inter-departmental professional, social, and academic activities!
Regular meetings: We are meeting every other Friday over noon in Garrett Cafe on the Evanston campus. The next meetings will be after the winter recess, on 2019/01/11 and 2019/01/25. No registration is required. You will recognize us by a banner.
Current activities: We work with the university administration to ensure that over the winter Evanston postdocs can meet indoors for sports. In January we will (re)start social meetings within the city of Evanston, and will soon thereafter host events for academic careers, as well as industry-sponsored sessions on a wide range of topics of interest to postdocs.
Our goal – staying inclusive: Recently activities of the Postdoctoral Association concentrated on Chicago. This bias reflects our membership composition and the long duration of the postdoc phase within the biomedical sciences. We expand (back) to Evanston to remain a community that benefits postdocs of all academic backgrounds.
I would like to join: Visit our regular meetings in Evanston, or reach out to email@example.com.
I can not join your Friday meetings: There are several further ways to become involved, or to learn about activities while they are still being planned. Reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I have an idea : Visit our regular meetings in Evanston, or reach out to email@example.com.
I am an institute administrator: We have demonstrated with our data science activities that cross-institutional efforts benefit tremendously by our university-wide community that crosses administrative boundaries. If you have not heard about us, or only host few postdocs, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. Contacting us ensures that we become aware of a potential problem in our outreach, and that neither your postdocs nor you will miss out on future opportunities. We are the official postdoc group of Northwestern and meet twice per month with the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs.
When did you start? We initiated regular meetings in Evanston on December 7th, 2018.
every other Friday
12:00 p.m. – 12:45 p.m.
