Are you interested in gaining teaching experience? In this month’s membership meeting, we will discuss opportunities for Postdocs to expand our teaching skills as part of career development. We’ll talk about different kinds of teaching, whether formal or informal, and how to build those experiences into your CV. And we’ll also discuss opportunities for teaching in the area, both within UC and outside.

This month during our Membership Meeting, we’ll discuss the UC Postdoc Benefits Plan:

  • What are my out-of-pocket medical expenses?
  • How to find a General Physician/Pediatrician/Dentist/Endodontist?
  • And more.

Especially helpful if you’re a relatively new Postdoc, or you want to educate yourself on all options before the Open Enrollment period coming up in October.

If you have a question right now, feel free to let us know at sandiego@uaw5810.org.

San Diego – BBQ with Academic Researchers United @ Kellogg Park
Sep 22 @ 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm

We are hosting another Beachside BBQ  and would like you to join us. We always have a great crowd, grill food, play volleyball, share food and conversation with fellow Postdocs, family and friends. Here are the details:

Researcher BBQ (RSVP Here)
When: Saturday, September 22nd from 12pm – 3pm
Where: Kellogg Park (8277 Camino Del Oro, La Jolla, CA 92037)

We will be joined by Academic Researchers (Project Scientists, Specialists and Researchers, many of whom used to be Postdocs) who are forming their own union, and it will be a great opportunity to create a stronger researcher community and network with each other.

There will also be sangria ($3/$4 suggested donation) and raffle tickets ($3 each or 2 for $5) to raise funds for our union’s Voluntary Community Action Program (V-CAP) to support pro-science, pro-labor candidates who will push back against the current administration’s attacks on science and international workers.

Please let us know if you are coming and if you are bringing any guests, so we know how much food we need, and feel free to bring a side dish to share with 5-10 people!
