Welcome to the website for the UC Berkeley Molecular and Cell Biology Postdoc Lunch Club (PDLC)!

             March 8th, 2019: From Academia to Science Policy on the National Level- Mary Maxon (Associate Laboratory Director for Biosciences, LBNL)


Dear fellow MCB postdocs,

Please join us Friday, March 8th to hear from LBNL's Associate Laboratory Director for Biosciences, who did her dissertation research in our home department, about travels through science leadership in government and directing big-picture ventures at the programmatic level. As always, (free) lunch will be provided during this opportunity to learn in an informal Q&A format from the experience of our invited speakers and to network with departmental postdocs as we navigate career trajectories together.

PDLC is a great opportunity to get to know and network with your fellow MCB postdocs and to learn and discuss about topics relevant for you and your career inside and outside academia in an informal environment with FREE lunch. We usually have one or two guest speakers, who share their insider knowledge on a given topic ranging from the grant and faculty applications, to different career paths in industry and consulting. Attending events is a way for postdocs to leverage career connections via the MCB department to perform group informational interviews and get in touch with faculty and professionals for the next stages of our collective professional lives.
