New APF logo!

The APF (Association of Postdoctoral Fellows) was looking for a new visual identity, launched a logo contest, and voted on a winner. So, we’re introducing our new logo on the website…

 

APFLogo

Hope you like it as much as we do. Going forward, we will try to integrate our logo in all of our events and correspondences so that it’s a recognizable “stamp” of our association and all McGill postdocs.

Career Event – A Panel Discussion with New Faculty (May 18th)

Hello McGill Postdocs!
McGill’s Association of Postdoctoral Fellows (APF) invites you to join us for a Career Event on Wed May 18th, 2016 (6-7:30PM) called “A Panel Discussion with New Faculty” in the basement of the Thompson House.
This will be a moderated Q&A discussion that will provide postdocs with the opportunity to ask new faculty members about their trajectory/obstacles/unexpected adventures …

Our panelists include:
Dr. Michael Hendricks (Biology; http://biology.mcgill.ca/faculty/hendricks/)
Dr. Cecily Raynor (Languages, Literatures and Cultures; https://www.mcgill.ca/langlitcultures/faculty/full-time-faculty-0/cecily-raynor)
Dr. Gilles Gouspillou (Des Sciences de l’Activité Physique; http://www.sap.uqam.ca/kin/personnel/Gouspillou.html)
Dr. Daryl Haggard (Physics; http://www.physics.mcgill.ca/~dhaggard/)
Dr. Sarah Moser (Geography; https://www.mcgill.ca/geography/people/moser/)

As per usual, food/non-alcoholic beverages will be provided, and bar staff will be available for those who want to purchase drinks.
This will be our final event prior to the Fall 2016 semester!
Please register for the event using the link below as space is limited, and we expect a great turnout for this event!

Welcome!

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.

APF Mission:

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.

GET INVOLVED!

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!
