Oxford University Research Staff Society

The Research Staff Society (RSS) membership consists of Post-
doctoral/Junior Research Fellows and Research Assistants who work for the University of
Oxford. As most Research Staff are not attached to a college and may be new to Oxford our
social events provide a unique opportunity to meet researchers outside your group or
department. We aim to provide an interesting and varying social setting in which to mix and
to become a voice for research staff within the University. We run social events each month
to suit all tastes. Please visit our Web site http://users.ox.ac.uk/~rss/, which provides
information on how to join the society as well as details on events which we will be running
in the near future. We hope you will decide to join us and very much look forward to
meeting you at one of our events this year.
