Postdoctoral Scholars

Postdocs are invited to participate in all events organized by the Office of Professional Development (OPD). Additionally, postdocs are encouraged to participate in activities offered exclusively to postdocs, such as the

The Postdoctoral Professional Development Small Grants Program, which provides up to $500 to support activities above and beyond the normal engagement in research. 

The postdoc Writing Accountability Group (WAG), modeled after a program at John Hopkins University that has helped thousands of academics be more productive and achieve their career goals. Over half of WAG participants report increasing their writing frequency with 68% reporting writing daily. It’s also a great way to meet new people and build your community! The next group kicks off on July 22 -  register here.
