Communication

UCSF has a large (1,100+) Postdoc population. Due to the nature of the university and its many campus locations, connecting with people can be a struggle. For this, the PSA has set up several ways to connect and communicate:

Facebook

Check out our Facebook page for more informal connecting and communicating. Share your ideas for activities, look for housing, etc.

Bay Area Postdocs (BAPS) Facebook page

Linkedin

Postdoc Community @ UCSF Linkedin Group, a central hub for the Postdoc Community at UCSF. Please join, get in touch with colleagues at UCSF, and share your experiences and ideas.

Twitter

Follow us on twitter @PostdocsUCSF for news and views on issues relevant to postdoc life at UCSF.

Slack

Slack is a messaging app for teams. This can be used to communicate with Postdocs in specific buildings or across campuses, if you need something immediately, say a chemical etc. You can subscribe yourself with your ucsf.edu email address:
