The Oregon State University Postdoctoral Association (OPA) is a postdoc organization which provides opportunities for professional development and networking for all OSU-affiliated postdocs. We also work with the Associate Dean at the Office of Postdoctoral Programs (OPP) in the Graduate School to improve the postdoctoral experience across OSU. Check out the OPP newsletters on their site. You can also connect with us and keep up to date with our events and general information relevant to the OSU postdoctoral community by following us on Facebook, TwitterLinkedIn and Pinterest.

Come and join us in this upcoming events:

July 27, noon. Pizza Lunch Forum Series. "Orchestrating a Powerful Group": Successful Team-Work in Academic Research. Facilitated by Prof. Jeffrey McDonnell. Most academic, and non-academic, research is conducted in groups or teams. The dynamic of these groups has a significant impact on the output of individual group members and of the group as a whole. Prof. McDonnell has recently shared his vision and experiences on academic team-work in an article published in Science and will discuss strategies and techniques to create and maintain successful and cooperative research groups.
