Dear Postdoctoral Community,
I hope you are enjoying your summer. I am excited about the opportunities that are coming in the fall. We have many upcoming events, including National Postdoc Appreciation Week, which will take place September 19-23.
This month Stacey Stachell will be presenting the Critical Conversation series starting on July 7 with "Beyond Time Management". Information on the series and how to register is below.
We will have our second SpeakEasy Talk Series on July 21. The June SpeakEasy was a great evening of networking and fellowship - and learning about the research in our postdoc community. The SpeakEasy provides opportunities to discuss your work and hear about other postdocs' research.
Finally, the Vanderbilt Postdoc Association Board elections are happening this month. Make your voice heard and help select your VPA representatives for the next academic year. The VPA facilitates the professional and personal development of its members as well as provides postdocs a forum to communicate ideas and advocate for issues. I encourage you to get involved!
Please do not hesitate to reach out to the OPA if we can support you in any way.
