PDN postdocs are actively represented within the department by postdoctoral representatives and a staff postdoctoral liaison officer. These representatives facilitate the organisation of events to give PDN postdocs the opportunity to present their research, to address specific training needs and to network with their colleagues. Since spring 2014, a Postdoc Committee has been set up to give a focus to these activities (the remit can be found here and the minutes here).
- Current postdoc representatives: Andrea Dimitracopoulos, Kate Feller, Ana Lopez Ramirez and Joanna Rakoczy.
- Current staff postdoctoral liaison officer: Bénédicte Sanson
- Current members of the postdoctoral committee:
Graham Burton (staff), Kelly Diederen (finances), Andrea Dimitracopoulos (Postdoc rep), Kate Feller (Postdoc rep), Paloma Gonzalez-Bellido (staff), Roberto Inchingolo (communications), Ana Lopez-Ramirez (Postdoc rep), Joanna Rakoczy (Postdoc rep), Bénédicte Sanson (staff, Chair), Michelle Ware (Masterclasses), Erica Watson (staff), Isabell Weber (Co-Chair PDN Research Symposium)
- All postdocs in the department (including postdocs in affiliated groups in Institutes). This list is used to disseminate information relevant to postdocs at Department, School and University level, such as teaching opportunities, postdoctoral training and events organised by the Graduate School of Biology or by the Careers Service. Academic positions in the UK and abroad are also circulated. If you are a PDN postdoc and not yet on this list, please contact Lyn Dakin to be added to the directory.
Postdoc Welcome Evening
We have a "mixer" evening in October each year for new and current postdocs. this academic year, this took place on Thursday 20th of October 2016 at 4pm in the Hodgkin seminar room, as part of the Foster talk series. Information talks by Joy Warde (PdOC), Rob Wallach (OPdA), Roberto Inchingolo (PDN Communications coordinator) and Bénédicte Sanson (Chair of the PDN Postdoc Committee) were followed by pizza and drinks in the department tea-room.
Postdoc web pages
Postdocs are welcome to publish their own web pages, with their PI approval.
Remember to CC your PI in the email so that she or he can review the form.
Once Roberto receives the form he will set up the page and send it back to you for review, along with instructions on how to edit it. You will be able to edit your page by default.
We regularly publish a Newsletter circulated on firstname.lastname@example.org. Previous Newsletters are archived here.
