DUPA at Durham Bulls

On July 18, a great turnout of Duke postdocs and families watched the Durham Bulls play the Pawtucket Red Sox at the Bulls stadium. This annually returning family friendly outing featured dollar concession night at the ballpark with cheap hotdogs, fries and popcorn, of course on a really hot mid-summer’s night! To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the movie Bull Durham, there was even a race of the movie’s main characters.

On Aug 17, DUPA will organize a trip to a game from the Carolina Railhawks. Subscribe to the postdoc list for more news!

Diversity Postdoc Alliance

Are you interested in broadening your postdoc experience at Duke by networking with individuals from diverse backgrounds i.e. from underrepresented groups, international, and/or from different fields of research? With the help of Duke University Postdoc Association, a new organization titled Diversity Postdoc Alliance is a group for just that…diversifying your network of colleagues. If this organization appeals to you, come out and join Duke’s Diversity Postdoc Alliance at the 7th Annual Postdoc Spring Fling on Friday May 17, 4-6 p.m. on the LSRC front lawn (In case it rains: LSRC Hall of Science).

DUPA @ Carolina Hurricanes

Duke postdocs had a blast watching the Carolina Hurricanes playing the Washington Capitals in the PNC Arena in Raleigh! Unfortunately Tlusty’s hat trick couldn’t prevent Carolina from losing. We’ll be going to a Bulls game soon — keep an eye on the postdoc  listserv for news.
