Choosing the Right Academic Postdoc

The time a trainee spends in graduate school is to reflect on which aspects of science and research are most important to them – pure research, teaching, administration etc. Even within academia, there are numerous types of postdoctoral fellowships, and understanding which one fits your long-term career goals is key.

Attendees will learn from the diverse experiences of our three panelists, and will have the opportunity to engage with our panelists via a Q&A.

Topics that will be covered:
– The different types of academic postdocs
– How to decide the right type for you
– Understanding the work, lifestyle, and career options each postdoc will provide

This webinar will take place as a moderated panel discussion mainly guided by audience participation. We encourage attendees to come equipped with questions.
