The Berkeley Lab Postdoc Association is an organization run by and for about 1000 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. Our goal is to facilitate social interactions, scientific exchanges, seminars and general orientation.

Before the barbecue season ends, we would like to invite you for a family-friendly gathering next Saturday (10/19) at San Pablo Park at 3-7 pm. All outdoor enthusiasts are invited to join the BBQ after our monthly BLPA hike. 

We will provide BBQ tools as well as cold drinks. For the food, it would be a potluck-style event. Here is a non-exhaustive list of what you can bring to share:

  • Meat to grill
  • Vegetables to grill
  • Ready to eat salad
  • Pie or cake
  • Chips, or any finger food
  • Your favourite potluck dish!

BLPA will provide grill, cooler, plates and cutlery as well as water, soft drinks and beers (upon 2$ donation – bring cash). It’s a family-friendly event with the park having a playground and restrooms. You can park easily close by. Feel free to bring outdoors games.

BLPA will bring the Great Cultural Game – a 3-round trivia game about countries covered by our Cultural Lunches series!
