An invitation to CALS postdoctoral researchers to meet with the Dean

Dear CALS Postdoctoral Researchers,

As a postdoctoral researcher, you represent a critical part of our college’s research enterprise, yet one with a unique set of circumstances that sometimes don’t receive the same attention as do those of students or faculty. As your interim dean, I would like your input on the issues you face as postdocs and how the college can do more to help you succeed.

I have reserved Upper Carson Gulley, from 1:30-3:00 p.m. on Wednesday, January 20, to begin this discussion. I and members of my administrative team will be on hand to hear your concerns and ideas and answer any questions you may have. I also encourage postdoc mentors to attend and/or provide input. Snacks and sodas will be provided.

Please consider joining us on January 20. I hope this will be the first of an ongoing conversation about how we can support you in your role as postdocs and ensure that you have a rewarding experience at UW-Madison.

Thank you for your consideration,

Irwin Goldman
Interim Dean and Director
