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 February 22nd. No registration is required. You will recognize us by a banner.
Current activities: We work on ensuring that over the winter Evanston postdocs can meet for sports. In February we will (re)start social meetings within the city of Evanston, and will soon thereafter host events for academic careers, as well as industry 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 actively 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 email@example.com.
I have an idea : Visit our regular meetings in Evanston, or reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 email@example.com. 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, and will also be joined by them in Evanston at occasions.
I am in another organization that also serves Northwestern's postdocs: Just like our Chicago colleagues we like to collaborate with others – especially with like-minded people like you!
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.
