Our union and Academic Researchers United and will co-host a coffee hour on Wednesday, August 15 at 10:30 AM. Drop by to have a cup of coffee and mingle with fellow Postdocs, and meet Berkeley Academic Researchers!

Berkeley is a great place to be a Postdoc because we work together to advocate for ourselves and our research community, and that’s possible because Postdocs overwhelmingly choose to become members. If you aren’t a member of our union yet, click here!
