In many fields, it is common for graduate students to become postdoctoral researchers after obtaining their Ph.D. degrees. A postdoc position is also a useful and often necessary step toward an academic career. This seminar will review different types of postdoctoral positions and fellowships, how to find and apply for them, and what it is like to be a postdoc.
This session is part of a 1-credit course designed to provide academic professional development for graduate students from all three schools at UC Merced. Students are welcome to register for the course to receive credit for attendance and engagement in seminar exercises. Or, students may attend any of the seminars and workshops individually without registering, and benefit from the information and discussion. The two-part workshops are designed to be most beneficial when students attend both parts.
