Recent Events Held By the Postdoctoral Office
Posted: May 10, 2013
There were two successful events hosted by the Postdoctoral Office recently on the Medford Campus. On Wednesday, May 1, 2013, there was a lovely lunch at Moultons Seafood, an excellent seafood restaurant a few blocks from campus on Winthrop Street, Medford. Nineteen of us enjoyed great fish and even better conversation. It was gratifying to see that Alfredo Bautista organized a follow-up pub night meet up at the Burren.
On Wednesday, May 8, 2013, we hosted a public speaking workshop led by Michael Lueger of the Tufts Drama Department. Twenty postdocs, grad students, and a couple of faculty received tips on public speaking and expounded in groups on such topics as why partying is more important than curriculum and teaching in preparation for the zombie apocalypse. All of this was under Mike's watchful eye and coaching with helpful advice from Mike Roberts (Occupational Therapy). Mike reported back to me that it was his most satisfying workshop experience in two years of doing this.

Lab Instructors – Pine Manor College
Posted: December 18, 2012
Pine Manor College is looking for young scientists to volunteer to design and teach a lab to undergraduate students for a new introductory Cell Biology class. Ideally the the labs in the course would follow a more experimental model that would allow the scientists to teach the undergraduates about scientific research.
This is a challenge to creative young scientists to develop a "traveling" lab that is self-contained; labs are weekly, and each lab could be one 3 hour session, or perhaps continue to two sessions, if needed. This would give young scientists experience in design and implementation of teaching labs for undergrads.
