Starting in 2022, The Steering Group of the PostdocNet initiated a new monthly discussion series, Postdoctoral Researchers Voluntarily Advancing and Inspiring Leadership, or PREVAIL. These meetings will be held to promote discussion about certain topics of utmost importance and to disseminate this information to the PostdocNet community.
At these meetings, we have a discussion centered around a certain topic for the first 45 minutes, and then we hold an open floor for anyone who wants to bring up other issues. These could be issues that you want the Steering Group to help resolve, or topics on which you would like to hear others’ perspectives. We encourage you to come and participate in the discussion, ask questions, and become more informed about these topics. Meetings take place on the first Monday of the month at 15:00 unless otherwise noted.
These meetings are not recorded. However, minutes are kept and can be sent out. If you are interested in having minutes for the PREVAIL meetings emailed to you, please fill out this form (and if you want to be removed from this mailing list, please reach out to the General Secretary).
Here are the list of past and future topics:
April 4th, 2022: The E13.3 Contract Situation
May 2nd, 2022: Mentoring, tenure track trajectories, and annual reviews
June 13th, 2022: Building a vibrant postdoctoral community at a local level
