    Hello TWiV team,
    Thank you so much for reading my email, it was quite an honor, keep up the good work. A quick correction I am actually a male but no worries, it was a 50-50 guess.

    Very interesting discussion! We’re having a forum discussion called “Changing the Postdoc” at UCSF on March 2. Our goal is to research and produce tangible action items for the university to act upon that would improve the postdoc experience. Here’s the event page : https://www.facebook.com/events/392911107557484 There will be a link to watch the talks on livestream or on demand added to the FB event page on March 1.
