The Office of the Vice President for Research has sponsored two research practice seminars on this topic. Postdocs and faculty members enjoyed brief presentations and lively discussions to share information and exchange ideas about successful mentoring and career development for postdocs. Each table had one trained postdoc designated as the facilitator, and an administrator who took notes. After discussing one question as a starting point, participants were encouraged to discuss other issues of interest. We hope people will launch discussions on these topics within their research groups or in other forums.
Information and notes from the two sessions held for postdocs and faculty members are available to the MIT community with a valid MIT Certificate.
