PRPA Announcements, Funding, & Memberships

Announcements

The Postdoctoral and Research Professional Association (PRPA) is excited to be coordinating a 4-week writing group that will meet once/week on Zoom throughout the month of February (2/2 – 2/23).

Meetings will be Thursday mornings from 10-11am PST; come with any analysis, grant, manuscript, etc. you’re currently working on! It does not matter which stage the project is in. We will set goals individually and provide each other support and accountability to make as much progress as we can in 4 sessions.

Zoom meetings will follow a standard agenda:

  • 5-10 minutes for goal setting & introductions
  • 40 minutes for writing/analysis time
  • 5-10 minutes for progress report & reflections
