The next RUT Networking lunch is coming up, Thursday the 30th May, 12PM in C210. Japanese translation will also be provided.

 

The theme is Changing Fields/Labs and Promotions.

 

In addition, we have been asked by the DFA to get current technicians' opinion on the evaluation system for Technicians, so we will be leading a short discussion after the talks. 

 

 

本日は来週530日(木)、12:00~13:00にセンター棟 C210 セミナー室にて開催される

「リサーチユニット技術員交流ランチ会」についてのお知らせです。

 

今回は2名の技術員の方が、「異なる研究分野/ラボへの移動(異動)・昇進」というテーマで

ご自身の体験をもとに、この交流会中にお話ししてくださることになっています。

 

加えまして、我々ORCは現在勤務している技術員の皆様から、業務評価システムのあり方について

意見を収集してもらえないかと、教員担当学監オフィスから要請を受けております。
