SOPS October Newsletter

Dear Fellow Postdocs,

Hope that your Fall term is going smoothly, and that you are enjoying the Autumn weather. Our Fall BBQ was a success, and thank you everyone who attended. We had 18 attendees from a number of departments, including a strong showing from the Institute for Genomic Biology. We decided to merge our event with the IGB event (scheduled for the same day). It was a good networking and recreational opportunity. We plan to have another event in the Spring, so be on the lookout for more details.

Thank you also to the people who attended the Postdoctoral Appreciation event hosted by the Postdoctoral Affairs Office. We (the executive board) were able to meet with some of you and listen to your concerns and ideas. One suggestion was to have an event focused on short talks given by Postdocs from across campus. Examples of a short talk might include a condensed job talk, presentation of some data, or just an opportunity for public speaking. Please contact Bradly Alicea ( if you are interested in presenting at such an event.
