Due to the COVID-19 precautions, we have to cancel all planned in-person BLPA events. Join the online activities we’ve prepared for our community. We are happy to organize outdoor events again after a very long year and a half! You can sign up our Slack Fun Space to learn more about vaccine eligibility and availability. Happy Vaccination!

No pressure, but if you’d like to participate, we’d love for you to join! Go ahead and sign up using the link above 🙂
Friday, August 11th, 7:30 PM, Game Night
Feel free to invite your friends and family. All the games are simple to play, no prior experience required. If you have an idea for a simple-to-play-via-Zoom game and would like to host an extra room, feel free to contact us at email@example.com. Volunteers who host game rooms will receive BLPA swags.
Slack Fun Space
We have launched a new Slack “fun space” for all LBNL and affiliated postdocs.
We have dedicated spaces to chat about housing, healthcare, taxes, COVID-19 and vaccination, hobbies, food, movies and tv, childcare, sell or buy stuff and even to post photos of your pets! Sign up here and join the conversation.
BLPA is made up of volunteers – and we are always looking to grow! Are you interested? Do you want to know about the inner workings of BLPA and contribute to the postdoc community, building a larger network? Please contact us (postdoc (at) lbl.gov) or sign up to check out one of our many committees!
