It is the mission of the Lawrence Livermore Postdoc Association (LLPA) to
promote a positive postdoc experience at LLNL through engaging social and
professional events, communication, and outreach.
By postdocs and for postdocs, the LLPA at LLNL acts as a connection between
the postdoctoral community and the management of the Laboratory. The purposes
of the LLPA are to help foster a collaborative community environment among LLNL
postdocs by providing opportunities for social and professional networking,
career development, and community outreach, and to provide a forum for
discussing issues postdocs may encounter and support in addressing those
The LLPA provides a newsletter, hosts an annual barbeque in the summer, organizes off-site lunches and other social and professional activities throughout the year. The LLPA also develops and maintains a handbook and a web site that explore the Lab and the Bay Area. The council members organize activities, serve as a primary contact for peer support within the postdoc community, and maintain the connection between the LLPA and Laboratory management.
All postdocs at LLNL are encouraged to participate in activities and become
active members of the LLPA. For more information about the LLPA, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
