The Sociable Postdoc Society (SPS) was launched Fall 2015 to replace the former Society of Postdoctoral Scholars (SoPS).

Our purpose is to provide opportunities to build postdoc community on the UCLA campus. We are currently in the process of launching initiatives that will give postdocs opportunities to mix and mingle in casual settings – for all degrees of sociability – and provide easy access to postdoc-related events on and around campus.

We are a 100% volunteer organization and we are looking to expand! If you are interested in getting involved, no matter how much, please contact us. The more hands on board, the more we can bring to the UCLA postdoc community!

Please send us feedback and suggestions! SPS is here to support the UCLA postdoc community – so we need to hear from you how best to do that. Drop suggestions in our Online Suggestion Box.
