The Oregon State University Postdoctoral Association (OPA) is a post-doc 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 post-doctoral experience across OSU. Check out the OPP newsletters on their site.

Come join us at these upcoming events:

Feb 25th, Board Meeting of the OPA: Join us in the Hallie Ford Center (Room 127, 4pm) to plan future events relevant to the OSU postdoctoral community.

Feb 25th, Elevator Pitch Workshop (Peers & Beers): What would you say in a minute to a member of a hiring committee whom you meet unexpectedly in an elevator? How can you pitch your research in a short speech to catch the attention of a prospective employer? Honing this skill may be key to advance your career and to introduce yourself and your work effectively. Come and join us to practice your “elevator pitch” Free appetizers will be provided!
