Postdoc Appreciation Week
During the Postdoc Appreciation Week September 16-19, 2019, join the UPDA board to celebrate the contributions of the postdoctoral scholars at the University of Utah! It will be a full week of events, including career development and social events to commemorate and celebrate postdocs’ contribution to university excellence. More information on the different events and on how to register on the Postdoc Appreciation Week page.
Do you want to relax and hang out with fellow post-docs? And maybe have a beer while doing so? You might meet your new best friend! Please join us on the last Thursday of every month at a local pub or brewery. An UPDA board member will be present wearing a silly hat. Come and say hi! There is no need to RSVP and feel free to bring friends and family! Our next Thirsty Thursday will be on September 19th as part of National Postdoc Appreciation Week! More details here.
