Dear PAPS newsletter subscriber,
The last couple of months have been quite busy and this newsletter has fallen a bit behind schedule. We apologize for the delay. Traveling, qualifying exams, PhD defenses and other things got in our way, but we've regrouped and the good news is that things should be back on track as of next month's edition.
In this edition of the PAPS newsletter, you'll learn about Pedro Beltrão's career path so far, get to know about some great initiatives in Portugal such as the “Ciencia Portugal” movement and Beta-Start, and see some of your colleagues graduation photos too!
We hope you enjoy this issue of our newsletter. We'll be back in a couple weeks!

Newsletter - May 2011
on Friday, 10/06/2011 — Ricardo Vidal

Dear PAPS Newsletter subscriber,

The May edition of the PAPS Newsletter is finally here -- is it June already!?

Since this is the first instalment of the 2011-2012 PAPS Executive Committee, we’ve decided to present ourselves in short, easy to read, Twitter-style bios. However, given that there is only so much you can learn from 140 characters, we will introduce ourselves in more detail in the upcoming newsletters. In the current one you can find out more about our treasurer, Joana Girante, namely her professional path and connection to Sesame Street.

As in previous newsletters, you’ll also find updated job board listings along with interesting opportunities and news.

The 2011-2012 PAPS Executive Committee

PS: We’ll be back to regularly scheduled newsletter releases from here on out.
