Finding the Right Postdoc: Advice from Current Postdoctoral Fellows
Thursday 8th November, 12-1pm, in the Golkin Room, Houston Hall
NEW PANELISTS ADDED: Postdocs representing the following disciplines will be present to answer your questions:
· Biomedical sciences
If you are interested in continuing on with research after your PhD, then you have probably been thinking about postdocs. You have probably also been contemplating the best way to find the right postdoc for you.
· will it be advertised?
· will you have to approach PI’s to ‘make your own postdoc’?
· when should you start looking?
· are there international opportunities you should consider?
· how do you know when you have found the right opportunity?
· and what should your postdoc experience give you to help you along your chosen career path?
This discussion panel will feature Penn postdocs from different disciplines who will talk about their own experiences looking for postdocs, provide advice on what you can do when you start your search, and answer any questions you have on where and how you can seek out postdoc opportunities. This panel discussion will be a valuable resource for anyone considering a postdoc once they have finished with their PhD – even if you are still several years from finishing up right now.
