PdOC Society events

PdOC Lecture Apr 2014

The PdOC society runs a variety of social events, which are a great way to meet and interact with postdocs and like-minded others.

The best way to get in touch with the community is to join our mailing list. There is also a Facebook page and the Twitter page for the PdOC Society.

Events run by the PdOC Society are generally open to all, including non-postdocs who share interests with the postdoc community, and extending to partners, friends, etc.. There are occasional exceptions for ticketed events where subsidised funding comes from restricted sources; these will be clearly indicated.

Events are organised by a loose-knit group of volunteers who meet monthly and share a low-volume mailing list. You can join! Contact the Society's events officers to find out more.

Weekly PdOC events

University Centre lunch -- every Tuesday at 1.15pm (note the new time) there is an informal cafeteria-style PdOC lunch table in the Main Dining Hall of the University Centre, Mill Lane, CB2 1RU (menu). This is a great way for new postdocs to meet others, and for old postdocs to catch up! Just look for the PdOC sign.
