A series of seminars given by Postdocs with the purpose of presenting the exciting science being studied at CU in an informal environment.
This event will took place on the 6th of August at the Rayback Collective (2775 Valmont Rd, Boulder). In honor of the solar eclipse we hosted 2 short talks on two related topics:
What is an eclipse and how to watch it safely
by Dr Emilie Royer (LASP - CU Boulder)
A magnetic dance of Earth and Moon
by Dr Stefano Maffei (Physics - CU Boulder)
A number of eclipse glasses, generously offered by the Astronomy magazine and the Eclipse Megamovie Project, were given out after and during the event. After the talks, everybody enjoyed the nice atmosphere of the Rayback Collective while networking with fellow Postdocs.
The first CU Boulder and Denver joint summer hike!
The first joint hike between The Postdoctoral Associations from CU Boulder and CU Denver at North Table Mountain was a greaat success! 15 postdocs from both campuses participated in the 3.5 mile hike and enjoyed sights of the Foothills and Denver and made some new friends along the way. The University of Colorado, Boulder, Postdoctoral Association of Colorado (PAC) will continue hosting (and co-hosting) these hikes throughout the rest of the summer and this fall, at various difficulty levels, to welcome all postdocs and their families in these fun, relaxing events. Be on the lookout for emails detailing these events! To read more about the experience check out an article by PAC member Dr. Ben Nault here!
