Announcing CFANS postdoc/research associate professional development retreat

The CBS and CFANS Postdoc committees have organized a professional development retreat for postdocs and research associates. This all expenses paid retreat will take place at Itasca Biological Research Station from September 18 - 20. The retreat will include panels on networking and diverse career paths, and workshops on the following topics: science communication, entrepreneurship, creating a LinkedIn profile, and setting up your own lab. There will be free time for informal networking with retreat participants and for writing or exploring Itasca. 

No worries if you are unable to travel to Itasca - key workshops on Thursday morning and afternoon will be also be available in rooms on the St. Paul campus. Importantly, there will be free food between workshops, as our UMN Postdoctoral Association will host a Picnic lunch between workshops as part of the National Postdoc Appreciation Week.
