Preparing well for a postdoc position and learning how to continiously develop your skills and your knowledge is critical to a successful career plan. During Winter Enrichment Pprogram (WEP) 2016 we held workshops on the following:

  • Pursuing a dream position: Planning your career
  • Preparing an individual development plan
  • What is an informational interview and why is it important?

During 2014 WEP, a workshop series entitled 'What to do with my PhD' addressed how to use skills that you gained during your PhD training in building a fulfilling and successful career. The instructors offered the following workshops:

  • How to get that job
  • Social savvy for scientists
  • Putting your PhD to work

Likewise, in 2013 the WEP schedule included the first seminar series relevant to Postdoctoral Fellows' career development and career planning.

  • The postdoctoral experience - what you should know
  • Responsible conduct in research
  • Making your postdoc matter - lessons from PIs
  • Alternative career options - government research laboratory
  • Getting the most out of research conferences and Networking for scientists
  • The academic job application and interview process - insights from our search committee
