Postdoc Panel for STEM Graduate Students: What to Know Before You Go

Thursday, April 28, 2016
9:00 am to 10:30 am

Do you have a postdoctoral position lined up for after you graduate? Or are you wondering if doing a postdoc would be worthwhile for your career? In this panel, current postdocs will share their experiences on applying for postdocs, what to look for in a mentor, and preparing for going on the job market afterwards.
