Postdoc Academic Chats 2013-14


From Postdoctoral Scholars to Your First Years as a Professor - and the Strategies You Need to Get There

Recognizing the uniqueness of the postdoc experience, the Postdoc Academic Chats are monthly lunch-time seminars for postdocs across the University who are considering academic careers. These sessions are led by Dr. Rick Reis.

Prior to each Chat, attendees will be sent three short Tomorrow's Professor eNewsletters postings (total reading time for all three articles should be no more than 15 - 20 minutes) on the specific topic under discussion.

Note: The eNewsletter and the Academic Chats are for people from all disciplines.
