Date: 26th August (Monday)
Time: 6pm – 9pm
Welcome back everyone!
Summer is slowly fading out: temperatures are dropping every so slightly, your tan line (if you had the luxury to acquire one) is vanishing and all you have left from your vacation are the 9000 pictures of sun sets you took by the beach. Maybe you have never left the campus and enjoyed the silence in the office/ lab, getting a heart attack whenever you heard footsteps in the hallway (probably another equally scared PhD candidate, working on their research). However you spent your summer – DION invites you to kick-start this new semester with our classic Happy Hours Shuffle Board event at Work Work.
Show off your pictures, share your vacation stories and get to know old and new fellow PhD and post.docs a bit more.
We reserved two (!) Shuffle Boards from 18.30 – and the first hour is, as it is custom by now, sponsored by DION.
Work work also provides other board games and a good atmosphere to mingle and chat, if you are not so much of a gaming type.
So all you need to do is to join us!

When: 24th July (Wednesday)
Location: Elgeseter Park
Summer is here (finally)! Next week’s weather forecast shows some perfect weather to set up a bbq grill outside and enjoy an outdoor evening with friends. Join us for an evening of grilling and chilling! The place is Elgeseter Park, just beside Studentersamfundet.
Bring some burgers, sausages, meat, or other things you would like to bbq. DION will be providing the bread, some vegetables, and sauces.
P.S: We are on the lookout for a good bbq grill, so if you have one and can bring it along, please get in touch with us (We will be getting the coal ourselves)

The Young Academy of Norway arranges a debate «The postdoc dilemma – when to stay and when to leave academia?».
May 23 at 20:00 in Klubben, Samfundet.
The panel discussion will be held in English and will address different topics and challenges related to the “postdoc career path”. How can you best navigate in and out of academia? How are you to balance between expectations inside and outside academia and for how long? When is it time to let go?
The event is free of charge and useful not only for postdocs, but also for PhDs. The president of DION, Nina Røkkum, will moderate the debate. Read more about the program and register here: http://akademietforyngreforskere.no/welcome-to-debate-the-postdoc-dilemma/
