at Barker 434. We will dedicate this meeting to discuss how we balance
our work with other aspects of life, and how this balance impacts our
career choices. Our speakers would be Gian Garriga, who is a PI here
at Berkeley (and also has a life :) ), and Elayne Chou, who is a
psychologist who specializes in career development (Bio and flyer below). As usual, there
will be lunch, and the great company of your fellow post-docs. Please
take a second to RSVP on the sidebar.
As usual, please spread the word around to any MCB (and other life
sciences) post-docs who may not be on our mailing list. And, if you
haven't done so already, please join our LinkedIn group "Berkeley MCB
Postdocs", where we are posting these and other announcements:
(We have opted to make the group 'private', so your details and any
communication will be protected; for that reason you may have to be
'approved' by a mediator.)
Thanks, and we hope to see you all there!
