Dear SIT Members,

Exactly one year has passed since I wrote my last newsletter (which you can find here). During that time I was in Canada working on my PhD thesis and I shared with you some of the challenges I encountered during my life as a PhD student. I finished that forward by acknowledging that I spend a lot of time wondering what the future will be like. In this second forward, I would like to share with you how things have progressed since.

September 2015 - The moment when the thesis was defended was liberating! It had put an end to 4 years of ups and downs and it also triggered self-accomplishment, a feeling that I had not experienced in years! I certainly needed that recharge because the challenge of being a postdoc was on the way.

Today - Four months have passed since I relocated to Switzerland and let me tell you, being a postdoc among Swiss citizens requires some adjustments, such as, being always on time and getting up very early. But I have to admit that I really like being a postdoc. I enjoy the freedom of designing my own project and I also like the pressure of having to write research grants. I hope these positive feelings don't change if my grants start being rejected! (Fingers crossed). Teaching will be a new challenge too, starting this October. I am very much looking forward to it. The production of data is a lot slower than I imagined but that time is invested in designing the new project I will be conducting. Since I have no data produced locally, I wont be able to see you in Hawaii but I will try to assist to the meeting in Cancun instead.

So, there you have, after the PhD-storm the Postdoc-calm came, and I really hope it lasts! I guess I will have to tell you about it in my next newsletter.

I hope you are all having sufficient time to enjoy the summer. For those who are writing the last manuscript, chapter for the thesis, or research grant I send my energy towards you! For those lucky ones that will go to Hawaii I wish you a scientific blast!

All the best, colleagues,

Osborne, Distinguished Service, and Honorary Membership awards. Also SIT members can nominate colleagues or mentors - check out the award criteria here! For nominations contact the RRS office.

The Radiation Research Society invites nominations from Full or Emeritus Members to allow selection of a candidate for the office of Vice-President-Elect, and for two candidates for Councilor-at-Large with terms beginning at the Annual Meeting in Waikoloa, Hawaii - OCTOBER 2016. Officer nominations start by April 20th and are due in the RRS office no later than the close of business MDT on May 27, 2016.

BRINGING A POSTER TO THE MEETING?
Please note the following important items regarding poster requirements:
1. You must be registered for the meeting by August 5th to guarantee your poster slot.  
2. Posters will no longer be displayed for the duration of the annual meeting. You will receive your set up and tear down times prior to your travel.
NOTICE: In Hawaii, there will be a new poster schedule. Unlike previous years when posters remained up for the entire meeting, posters will be on a schedule based on their category where they will be on display for certain days and then taken down. Although the schedule has not been released yet, we would like all conference attendees to be aware of this change prior to the meeting. Updates will be available in coming months. Any questions should be directed to Audrey Rinehart (audrey@radres.org | 406.522.1316)
