Here is the latest from the Postdoctoral Executive Committee (PEC):


The Postdoc Executive Committee (PEC) designs and distributes an Annual Survey to the ISMMS postdoc community each year and uses the feedback to advocate for the postdoc community’s needs and to craft our professional and social programming in coming years. We had an outstanding response rate of 67% with representation from over 25 departments and institutes. Postdocs have made their voices count; now we’ll make sure they’re heard.


SAVE THE DATE! The 7th Annual ISMMS Postdoc Symposium will be Friday, September 23. This year’s theme is Industry: Beyond the Bench. Find out more about the program and where you can register (it’s free!) here. If you’d like to be involved in the networking reception, please email


The August edition of the Postdoc Periodical features the following articles:


  • Laura tells us about the interesting and efficient reproductive cycle of the Australian pademelon.

  • Kathryn clarifies parental leave policies for ISMMS postdocs.
  • Victor interviews ISMMS postdoc alumnus (and Periodical alumnus!) Dr. Jesica Levingston MacLeod, who is currently a consultant and project manager for the tissue phenomics company, Defiens.
