SOPS organizes a wide variety of professional development and social events throughout the year. In addition, In June of each year we hold a Research Symposium open to graduate student and postdoc presenters.
Events are open to all but tend to be especially interesting to postdoctoral scholars and fellows, visiting fellows, and upper-level graduate students.

Types of events:
- Social: Network with other UK postdocs
- Professional development workshops: Faculty members will give lectures about important skills to make your postdoc successful and how to prepare for future careers.
- Seminar series: A chance for postdocs to practice their speaking skills. A great way to prepare for a conference or job talk.
