Authorship and other forms of academic credit are of course important for Postdoc career advancement. Join us for our monthly campus membership meeting where we’ll discuss disputes around academic credit, and strategies to make improvements in this area.

Lunch will be provided!

We want to hear from you about how authorship disputes have impacted your experience as a Postdoc and how we can most effectively make progress on this critical issue in upcoming contract negotiations. Can you take a couple minutes to fill out our authorship survey?

Berkeley — Postdoc and Academic Researcher Coffee Hour @ Picnic tables between Li Ka Shing, Genetics and Plant Biology, Morgan, and Mulford
Jan 15 @ 2:00 pm

UAW Local 5810 Postdocs and Academic Researchers are co-hosting a coffee hour next week. Drop by to have a cup of coffee and connect with fellow researchers, get answers to any questions you may have about rights and benefits, and discuss ways that we can build our membership!

We’ve made Berkeley 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!

Hope to see you there!
