Berkeley — Coffee Hour with Academic Researchers United @ Wurster Hall
Jul 17 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Our union and Academic Researchers United will co-host a coffee hour on Tuesday, July 17. Drop by to have a cup of coffee and mingle with fellow researchers!

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!
