LBL Membership Meeting – Appointments and Job Security @ 33-106
Jun 26 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

What rights does our contract provide with regard to appointment length and appointment letters? What does a layoff mean? What if you find another job before your appointment end date? Join us at our next meeting to learn more about everything appointment-related, and hear from other Postdocs about their experiences. This is also a good opportunity to ask any other questions that you may have.

Lunch will be provided!
