We are a slack group of (primarily) postdoctoral researchers that are based within the UK or EU. We welcome anybody who is, or plans to be, based in the UK for their postdoctoral position (including final year PhD students and those who’ve left academia). We are currently over 230 members and growing!
Inspired by the ever brilliant Prachee Avasthi who created NewPI slack and following in the footsteps of Pearl Ryder, creater of FuturePI Slack, this new group aims to bring together postdocs from all disciplines working across the UK.
