January 2013 Postdoctoral “WRITING SUITE” (1/25)

An opportunity to work on an article, grant, or application

We invite all postdocs on campus (all backgrounds, all disciplines) to consider coming to campus on Friday, January 25, 2013 for a “Postdoctoral Writing Suite.” Modeled after the PROMISE Dissertation House, the Postdoctoral Writing Suite will provide you with an opportunity to spend some time on an article or manuscript that you are preparing for publication, a grant that you need to submit, or a job application that you need to prepare. In short, it is time away from the library, lab, or department to focus on something that you need to write for your own personal development. Best practices from The Dissertation House show that participants who share goals in a group setting and then have focused time to work on those goals often find that they are able to move closer to completing said goals.

Schedule:

8:30 Breakfast (Commons 331)
9:00 Opening for Postdoctoral Group (Commons 328) (Led by Dr. Judith Pollack)
10:00 Writing
12:30 Re-cap
