BUDDY POSTDOC PROGRAM The PCP is proposing a Postdoc Buddy Program to facilitate the integration of incoming postdocs. In this voluntary program, we pair an incoming postdoc to a “buddy” postdoc who is already working at BRIC/Finsen. Current postdocs introduce the person to our culture of sharing and interaction at BRIC, offer social support as well as the different activities available (Scientific and Social).
