Postdoc Orientation

Stay tuned for our next Postdoc Orientation.  Get a chance to meet a member of PDAC and learn about the variety of services our office provides for our postdocs!

English Conversation Group

The Office of Postdoctoral Scholars is beginning an English Conversation Group. Take part in a conversation about a topic we will decide as a group. Use this time to practice your English comprehension and speaking skills. We have also added some practice with writing and can be a practice audience for upcoming presentations you might have.

Contact Renee if you have any questions.
