Our Postdoctoral Associates are a valuable asset to our department through research productivity and by participating in the campus postdoc community. The postdoc group in our department holds regular meetings throughout the semester to discuss their current projects, take part in professional development oppportunities and coordinate outreach events. Each spring the Postdocs share their current research through a series of talks called PoSSe, the Postdoctoral Seminar Series.
The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs organizes the broader postdoctoral community on campus, including hosting events and sharing award opportunities throughout the year.
