Postdoctoral Liaison Committee
To improve the Postdoctoral experience at CSHL by providing personal and professional support to the CSHL postdoc community. We represent and communicate postdoctoral affairs to CSHL Leadership and mediate transparency.
Members of CSHL’s Postdoctoral Liaison Committee (PDLC) are elected each year by their peers. They meet regularly with CSHL’s postdoctoral community, leadership, and Scientific Advisory Committee to discuss postdoctoral affairs at CSHL and facilitate communication between postdocs and senior leaders on campus.
Since late 2019 Oliver is part of the PDLC. Through his engagement for the committee he hopes to further build an open and supportive atmosphere amongst postdocs at CSHL across all areas of research. Giving postdocs opportunities to voice their concerns and constructively work on solutions is one of his major points of focus. Oliver is convinced that a healthy treatment of both private and professional life leads to a fulfilled time at CSHL as well as long-term success.
