Berkeley Lab

Welcome to Berkeley Lab Postdoc Association (BLPA)

The Berkeley Lab Postdoc Association is an organization run by, and run for, postdocs and early career scientists working at the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab. We organize many activities to strengthen our ties to the Lab, to each other and to the (Berkeley) Bay Area. Check out our events, our LinkedIn page, our Facebook group. We also have information on working and living in this beautiful Lab and area. Don’t hesitate to contact us for any more information.

Berkeley Lab Postdoc Association (BLPA)

We are federating over 1000 postdoctoral researches affiliated with the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab. Our goal is to facilitate social interactions, scientific exchanges, seminars and general orientation.
