Welcome to the Su Lab


Welcome to the Su Lab! We’re excited to have you join us. Here are some things you should do to get a jump start in this lab.

Things you should try to take care of before your first day:

  1. Verify equipment will be ready for you when you arrive. If not, it will need to be ordered, so it’s best to take care of this 2-4 weeks before arriving. This equipment may include, but is not limited to:
    • mouse
    • keyboard
    • computer
    • monitor
    • docking station/docking equipment
  2. Update your member profile page. Since you need access to the Su Lab member website in order to read this page, you may as well take care of this while you’re at it.
  3. Sign up for Su Lab frequently-used online sites, including:
    • HipChat (group chat — ask Andrew)
    • Lastpass (needed for sharing credential info)
    • Bitbucket (where some of our project repositories are — ask Andrew to add you to team)
    • Github (where the rest of our project repositories are — ask Andrew to add you to team)
  4. Make sure your TSRI orientation meeting is scheduled. (If you have any questions or concerns, contact Shirley.) This meeting will cover getting an email account, an ID card, and a parking permit.

On your first day

  1. Get a copy of the keys from Shirley (Her office is located within MEM-215)
  2. Verify that your ID card works to open the gates during off hours. If you swipe it, you should be able to hear the unlocking mechanism even if you are using it during ‘open’ hours.
  3. Get an ethernet port activated for you — submit a network connection request with IT (intranet link).

Within the first few weeks

  1. Schedule an appointment with TSRI’s ergonomics department after your equipment and work station has been set up
  2. If you wish to park in the gated lots, you may need to contact the parking office and have your ID card activated to enable access to gated lots. If you don’t, then regular parking permit should work just fine.
  3. Schedule and attend any other required orientation meetings with HR–usually there will be at least one or two other meetings aside from your orientation meeting. The benefits orientation, and some sort of workplace safety meeting.
  4. Get access to the repositories you’ll need. These are project-specific, but the Su lab has repositories on Github and bitbucket.
