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!
This year’s Spring Fling benefited again from the lovely NC weather! Our family friendly spring picnic had the usual fajita bar, beer from local breweries and four flavors of delicious, local Maple View Farm ice cream. Organized by the Office of Postdoctoral Services and DUPA.
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).
Are you looking for a plasmid? An order for a critical buffer was delayed and you need a small sample now? Looking for an infrared camera? Duke postdocs and other laboratory workers can now look for and share reagents, protocols, and scientific expertise through the Reagent Swap mailing list. By subscribing to it, you can post requests for reagents, advice, equipment sharing, et cetera, and help others with your expertise.
The list is managed by DUPA; more info can be found here.
