Welcome to the Early Career Scientists Society (ECSS) of the Life Sciences Division at Berkeley Lab.

The Early Career Scientists Society (ECSS) - formerly named Postdoc Society - provides an environment that fosters career and personal development for early career scientists at Berkeley Lab. ECSS members are diverse, and include postdocs, scientists, research associates, graduate student research assistants, and graduate students from the Life Sciences Division and other Berkeley Lab divisions.

Events include a seminar series, Life Sciences Division seminars hosted by the ECSS, an annual summer picnic, all organized by the ECSS Committee. The committee also provides career and personal development resources. We welcome you to participate in these events and use the resources offered. Events are posted on the Life Sciences Division Events Calendar.

Participation in the committee is also strongly encouraged. Members plan and organize the ECSS functions. It is a very helpful way to integrate into the scientific community at Berkeley Lab and it is also fun!
