Oncology Postdoctoral Network (OPN)
ONCOLOGY POSTDOCTORAL NETWORK
The Oncology Postdoctoral Network (OPN) is a member-driven organisation within the Department of Oncology that aims to provide a unique voice for postdoctoral researchers. Since the postdocs in the department are distributed across different buildings, the network aims to provide a platform for postdoctoral representation in the Department of Oncology. Updates on departmental business is provided by the postdoc representative who attends Group Leader meetings, chaired by the Head of Department.
The OPN goals primarily comprise:
- Community building: promotion of regular meetings and creation of opportunities for the postdoctoral community to connect with each other and enhance their professional development and leadership skills.
- Resources networking: facilitation of the exchange of material and human resources, improving research productivity and departmental cohesion.
- Career planning: organisation of the annual OPN Away Day and seminars to highlight different career options in science to help postdocs plan their careers
