Even better, become part of the executive team and contribute to the development and well-being of the postdoc community at the U of C. Serving in the PDAC exectuive team provides a unique experience to collaborate with bright and like-minded postdocs on projects that push your abiliites beyond your lab or desk. Sounds interesting to you or do you know someone who you think wants to join the executives? Please do not send any more nominations by e-mail - we cannot guarantee that we will have time to read them. We will now only accept nominations from the floor during the AGM.
