The Brown Postdoc Committee was established in December 2018 to fill the current gap in postdoc representation at Brown. Our vision statement is to represent, advocate for, and establish a postdoc community at Brown University.

To fulfill our vision, the committee actively arranges regular social and professional development events especially tailored to improving the postdoc experience at Brown. Our social events currently include a monthly trivia every last Wednesday of the month and monthly happy hour every second Wednesday of the month. Our professional events include our annual postdoc retreat featuring academic workshops on grant writing and navigating career transitions as well as interactive postdoc networking activities. 

Our upcoming events include:

  • Monthly trivia night: every last Wednesday of the month
  • Monthly happy hour: every second Wednesday of the month
  • Postdoc Retreat: summer 2020

As a postdoc at Brown, you are automatically invited to join our "Postdoc Community." You can join the listserv to keep up with our events.

If you would like to help out and join the committee, please contact our current committee chairs, Felix Chan ([email protected]) or Theresa McKim ([email protected]). We are always looking for more hands on board to help out with the committee.
