Doodle: Firbush postdoc trip

Oh hey post docs! You all look like you could be keen for a trip to Firbush, perhaps this summer? Just a couple of days. We'll even bring in some awesome guest speakers because we're nice like that.

Keen as a bean?

Then fill out our doodle poll to let us know you're interested. Then we'll work out dates. Then we'll organise it. THEN WE'LL GO AND HAVE FUN. We would like to gauge interest in a trip to Firbush this year. The plan would probably be a 2day trip with networking and talks scheduled both days. Once we have an idea of interest, we can then plan a more detailed schedule.


A-Z course list

Fancy a bit of academic development? Want to change career path but don't know how? Wishing you were a better communicator? Check out this list of courses provided by the university to help you out! The workshop directory provides a list of all workshops we run for research staff, plus links to an overview of other University training providers.

[08/28/17]   Good morning post docs! G2PD is about to be completely overhauled and resurrected! Hold on to your hats and contain your euphoria, big things are coming.

In the meantime, if you have a buddy who is a post doc in George Square but doesn't know that we exist, please give 'em a shove in this direction. If they don't have Facebook, fear not! The mailing list is also being resurrected, so once those emails start flowing, please let us know if we've missed people out.
