Campus-Submitted Announcements

Miscellaneous

1.) UofL Magazine delivery changes to increase efficiency

In an effort to be more efficient with resources and ensure that all faculty and staff have access to the University of Louisville Magazine, the Office of Communications and Marketing will distribute bundles of the publication to each department via Campus Postal Services.  Produced three times per year, the magazine will deliver to department administrative staff for distribution within each department.  Faculty and staff who are UofL graduates still will receive a copy of the magazine at their preferred location – in their campus mailbox or at home.  If you have questions or would prefer to only access the magazine online, contact Mark Holdener at mark.holdener@louisville.edu or 852-2264.

2.) PLAN workshop: Formatting and submitting your dissertation or thesis

2 p.m. – 3 p.m. Feb. 11, Room 105, Houchens Building

This workshop is for you if you are writing your dissertation, thesis or a similar project that will need to be submitted to the School of Interdisciplinary and Graduate Studies. Participants will learn how to implement the university’s submission guidelines about format, layout, etc. Students who are writing or even anticipating writing a dissertation/thesis are highly encouraged to take advantage of this workshop. More information and registration at PLAN.

3.) PLAN workshop: Finding the right post-doctorate position

2:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. Feb. 13, Room 2006, Nursing K-Wing, Health Sciences Campus

In most STEM-related disciplines, a period of postdoctoral training is expected after a student earns his or her PhD degree. What are the expectations? How long should a post-doc last? How should you plan to get the most out of your post-doctoral experience? What should you look for and how do you find that perfect post-doctorate position? These and other questions will be addressed as we examine the sometimes mysterious world of post-doctoral training. More information and registration at PLAN.
