How does one make the most of his or her limited time as a postdoc? In this panel, seasoned postdocs and junior faculty will discuss what steps they took during their postdoc that proved successful, and reflect on what they wished they had done (or started to do) earlier. Additionally, they will discuss what skills and training have provided the greatest advancement in their careers. Audience members will have the opportunity to ask questions and seek advice from the panel.

A postdoc is a truly precious time in a researcher’s career. The ultimate goal of a postdoc is to develop additional skills needed for the next phase of one’s chosen career. Whether you are just starting your postdoc, a graduate student preparing for a future postdoc, or even a seasoned postdoc, the advice from this inspiring set of panelists will give you unique perspectives into how to make the most of your postdoc experience.
