Greetings Fellow Postdocs!

The YPA has two exciting events coming up in early December that we want you to know about! The first is on December 11th, a panel discussion about getting a job in academia with postdocs and early career faculty members who are going through, or have just gone through, the academic job search process. The second is on December 13th, a hands-on LinkedIn boot camp designed to help you perfect your LinkedIn profile (A limit of 40 postdocs). All postdocs are welcome to RSVP for these events! You can find more about these events and RSVP below!

You can also find the meeting minutes from our most recent YPA monthly meeting attached here. If you have any questions about these events or the YPA in general, don’t hesitate to let us know!

Thanks!

-Drew and Drago, YPA Chairs
