Organizing The Future of Research with Academic Researchers United @ Stanley Hall, Room 177
May 31 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Future of Research promotes grassroots advocacy by researchers and collects data about academia and scientific training. In Gary’s talk, titled “What’s Next, for the Next Generation of Researchers?”, he will present results from the Next Generation Researchers Initiative, a Congressionally-mandated committee convened by the National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine to examine how to create viable and sustainable career paths for early-career scientists. Postdocs and Academic Researchers from UC Berkeley and LBL will also speak about how they are taking collective action to make improvements.

Don’t miss this great opportunity for a conversation with Postdocs and Academic Researchers on many of the issues we’re facing regarding funding, research, and our careers. The event is open to all, so please help spread the word. There will be more information in weeks to come (including details on live streaming), but for now, save the date!

The benefits and protections important to Postdocs are under attack because of a series of court decisions and policy changes, among which is the billionaire-funded Janus v AFSCME case against public-sector unions. Please join your fellow Postdocs at this month’s membership meeting to discuss how we can fight to protect our right to stand together and advocate for ourselves and our profession.

Food will be provided!

Sincerely,

Rosie Gradoville, Unit Chair
