Skills and Career Development

The YPA seeks to provide a wide range of opportunities for postdocs to advance their professional development and mentorship skills. We work extensively with the Office of Career Strategy (OCS) to plan events geared towards career professionalization,the Poorvu Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) to offer teaching-focused workshops, and the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs to provide workshops in mentorship skills. Additionally, we host our own events created, planned, and run by postdocs. Explore some of our regularly-occurring events on the menu to the left. We love to get new suggestions for events, so please contact us if you would like us to create a new offering or cover a certain topic in one of our regular event series!
