CANCELLED: Enhance Your Research & Professional Development: Leveraging an Individual Development Plan

Monday, March 16, 2020 at 1:00pm to 3:00pm


In the context of today’s competitive research and workforce landscapes, graduate students and postdocs struggle to enhance their career development while also prioritizing their research productivity. In this interactive workshop, learn strategies for enhancing your own professional development strategic planning—from defining your long-term career goals, to creating a plan, to seeking and leveraging a team of mentors. Dr. Cynthia Fuhrmann, who co-developed the most widely-used online Individual Development Plan for PhD scientists (myIDP, hosted by AAAS’s Science), will describe the IDP process and guide you through creating (or updating) your IDP.

This CAPD event is open to MIT undergraduates, graduate students, postdocs, and alumni. Registration requested via Careerbridge (powered by Handshake).
