PDC Postdoc Summer Social Event

Kickstart Summer 2022 with a free ice cream and network with other postdocs and colleagues from across the University!

Past Event

June 24, 2022
The ice cream van will be parked outside The Graduate School
15:30 - 17:00


Would you like to have an informal chat with other postdocs and research staff from across the University, all while enjoying a delicious free ice cream or lolly? 

Then sign up for our postdoc summer social on Friday 24 June at 3.30 pm!

This event is open to all research staff at Queen’s, and is an opportunity for you to get to meet and network in a relaxed way with colleagues from different Schools and Faculties. We’ve booked an ice-cream van and will provide the first 100 registered researchers with a free ice-cream ticket! The van provides classic ‘99’ ice creams as well as ice lollies and slush puppies as dairy-free alternatives (or just if that’s what you prefer)! 

The van will be parked in the area between The Graduate School and you’ll be able to chat in the lovely adjacent Quadrangle, or in the Foyer of the Peter Froggatt Centre if the weather is not as 'summery' as we would like. 

We won’t be providing a format for networking, but attendees will be given a badge with their name and the research priorities their work aligns with, which can be used as a conversation starter. 

We’re looking forward to seeing you there and to celebrating the start of summer with you! 

A Family Friendly Event

Whilst this event is aimed at research staff, please feel free to bring along a PhD student, technician or other colleague who wants to network. This is a family friendly event so family members are also welcome to attend. 
100 free tickets for ice creams/lollies are up for grabs for the first 100 registered researchers, so depending on numbers, we may not be able to provide additional guests with a free ice cream ticket however, items can be purchased directly from the van on the day.
