Postdoc Circles

The postdoc circles are organized by postdocs to enjoy and promote common activities. Please, contact the group leader if you are interested in joining. If you have another idea for a postdoc circle and like to organize a circle, just contact 

Latino and Hispanic Postdocs Circle

Are you a postdoc identified as Latino and/or Hispanic? Would you like to meet other Latino and Hispanic postdocs at the UM to strengthen your professional connections or just to socialize and make new friends? The purpose of this group is to provide you with a common space to build community and promote a better personal and professional experience at the UM. We hold monthly casual meetings to network, socialize and discuss topics of general interest for our community while exploring Ann Arbor’s interesting places.


Black Postdocs Circle

This group aims to support and build community among self-identified Black/African-American postdocs at The University of Michigan. We hold regular meetups to network and strengthen the sense of community across disciplines.


Postdoc CenterSpace

This group focused on building community among LGBTQ+ postdocs at the University of Michigan. We aim to facilitate both personal and professional connections at monthly meetings. These meetings provide space to meet other postdocs and discuss issues unique to the LGBTQ+ postdoc community.


Postdoc Soccer

We are a Mcommunity group ( with around 90 members in total. We usually play on Saturday at 7 pm at Fuller Park, but sometimes this is shifted depending on the weather. Our group is very diverse and includes international men and women. Even though the group is called Postdoc Soccer we also include graduate students, faculty members, etc. The environment is very friendly and cordial. We are just a bunch of friends playing soccer outside when the Michigan weather allows it. Everybody is welcome to join.
