The Oregon State University Postdoctoral Association (OPA) is a postdoc organization which provides opportunities for professional development and networking for all OSU-affiliated postdocs. We also work with the Associate Dean of the Office of Postdoctoral Programs (OPP) in the Graduate School to improve the postdoctoral experience across OSU. Check out the OPP newsletters on their site. You can also connect with us and keep up to date with our events and general information relevant to the OSU postdoctoral community by following us on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.

Stay tuned for upcoming events:

Oregon State University Office of International Services and the OSU Postdoctoral Association would like to invite you to a Speed Friending event! This event is intended to bring together international scholars and faculty members, to meet, mingle, and possibly make new friendships with OSU Postdoctoral Association and other community members! Speed friending is a structured way to meet other new colleagues for brief five-minute conversations. 

How does it work? Initially you are paired with a partner, then after five-minutes of conversation, you will move onto the next person for another five-minute conversation. 

The speed friending event, on Monday, June 26th 6pm-8pm, will be limited to 40 people and will include free pizza (both vegetarian and meat) and drinks for participants. 

Location: Valley Library, Willamette East/West Room (Valley 3622)

Please register here:

This event is limited to 40 participants. A confirmation email will be sent to the first 40 registered participants to remind them about the meeting time and location.
