Feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns you might have about the Postdoctoral experience here at Illinois. Looking forward to an exciting year!

As part of the National Postdoc Appreciation Week, the Society of Postdoctoral Scholars (SOPS) will host a potluck and BBQ at Hessel Park on Saturday, September 26. We will provide burgers (veggie and non-veggie), hot dogs, chips and drinks. It will be great if you can bring one or two homemade dishes to share with others. There is a playground for kids at the park, so if you have family here, bring them with you.

Join us for a fun and relaxing time!
