Introducing the MCB Postdoc Lunchclub
The MCB Postdoc Lunchclub aims to bring postdocs together once a month to discuss issues relating to our postdoc experience while enjoying some free food. We offer a forum where we can both learn about each other's work as well as find ways to improve our day to day lives. See the end of this email for a link to our website and RSVP for the next lunchclub!
Recent Panel Discussions
"Insights into the Academic Job Market"
"Advice on NRSA Fellowships and K99/R01 Grants"
"Issues Concerning Postdoc Parents"
"Leveraging Your Postdoc Experience for a Job in Industry"
In addition to these panel discussions, we offer a venue to practice your research talk in an informal friendly atmosphere. We're looking for speakers to present at upcoming lunchclubs. Slots are available throughout the summer, so email us at email@example.com if you're looking to practice that upcoming job talk, conference talk, or would just like to get some general feedback on a nascent project.
