Career Development

Throughout the postdoctoral period, postdocs may access a variety of services and resources, summarized in this section.

"Having invested heavily in research training, members of the postdoc population are at a crucial point in the career trajectory. Each is deciding whether to follow a research track in the future and if so, whether to apply his/her skills to academic or non-academic paths, or whether to go down a different path. These considerations underscore the importance of mentorship and career planning during postdoctoral training."
