Hello McGill Postdocs,
Since 2016 is drawing to an end, and the holidays are approaching, we thought it would be great to host a postdoc get-together. The APF (Association of Postdoctoral Fellows) invites you to join us for two events on Saturday December 10th.
First, a group of us will be checking out the Christmas Market in the Old Port.
Any postdocs (as well as their families/partners) are welcome to join us.
We will meet at 3:50PM on Dec 10th at Vauquelin Place/Square in the Old Port (we’ll be close to the Vauquelin statue, and some of the APF members will be wearing Christmas hats so you can recognize us.). We will leave at 4PM sharp to walk over to the Christmas Market.
Afterward, for those who are interested/can join us, we will walk over to Les 3 Brasseurs (rue Saint Paul, Old Port) for drinks.
For anyone interested in joining us for drinks at 6:30PM (Dec 10th) at Les 3 Brasseurs, please fill out the Eventbrite link as seats will be limited. This is the same place as last year, as people were really happy with the venue and it’s able to accommodate larger groups. We will likely be upstairs.

Join us for the workshop on how to talk about your academic skills to non-academic employers!
Post-docs are very skilled group of individuals but sometimes we don’t know how to describe our skills and leverage them outside of academia. Join us for this event to prepare a great CV and learn how to talk about yourself to the non-academic employers!
WHEN: Tuesday, December 13th 2016 from 5:30PM – 7:30PM
WHERE: Thomson House – 3650 Rue McTavish, Montréal, QC H3A 1Y2
Register here (places limited).
We are the Association of Postdoctoral Fellows of McGill. We are postdocs, and represent the 650+ current PDFs at McGill, and the over 1000+ PDFs that pass through McGill every year.
We aim to address the issues that postdocs face at McGill, as well as nationally and internationally. Whilst all postdocs are part of the PGSS, we face some fundamentally different challenges – definition of our status, taxation, and career development, to name but a few. Our aim is to keep McGill postdocs informed of relevant information, in addition to advocacy work and acting as a voice of PDFs within the McGill community, and at large.
A postdoc position is a busy and critical stage of our career, and so the running of the APF needs to be spread amongst a number of people. We’re working to keep the website up to date, and make sure PDF representatives sit on designated committees within the university. There’s also plenty to be done in terms of events, sharing information and expertise, and career development opportunities. If you’d like to get involved – please contact an executive member! We also have an email address. We’d love to hear from you!
