Who We Are

The Society of Postdoctoral Scholars (SOPS) is an organization of postdocs at the University of Kentucky. SOPS assists current, past or incoming postdocs with career advice, professional development, and networking opportunities. SOPS is a UK student organization and was formed in 2014. We have a wide variety of members from colleges across campus and are always looking for postdocs who want to involved in SOPS leadership.

Anyone obtaining postdoctoral training regardless of title is welcome to join!
