Postdoctoral Career Development Seminar Series

The Postdoctoral Career Development Seminar Series is held monthly and allows a time for Postdoctoral Scholars and Fellows to convene for the opportunity of hearing from professionals in various avenues of biomedical research concerning their careers and skills that they develop to aid in their ultimate success in their chosen career paths. These seminars are typically held at noon and are open to senior level graduate students and postdocs. Lunch is provided to those who RSVP.

Announcements are sent out through the Postdoctoral Listserv, posted to the Office of Biomedical Education Facebook page, and listed here as well.

Registration with the Office of Biomedical Education will ensure that you do not miss out on the announcements about these highly informative events!
