Run by and for researchers, The DPAG Researcher Society aims to promote interactions between postdocs, research assistants and other research scientists to create a friendly network of skills and expertise and to welcome new researchers to the Department.
All researchers will be added automatically to a mailing list when they start to be kept up to date with events etc.
