This week is the National Postdoc Appreciation Week!
Being a postdoctoral scholar requires support from mentors and institutions, to continue to work towards the dual role of providing contributions to the research enterprise and career development training. With the start of National Postdoc Appreciation Week, we are reminded of the importance of protected time for postdocs to explore opportunities, network, and connect with fellow postdocs. The National Postdoctoral Association identified six core competencies that all postdocs should develop during their training.
The UCSC STEM Postdocs Association (USPA), run by postdoc volunteers, is dedicated to provide career training and networking opportunities for our own community. Subscribe to our google group to receive emails and check our website for events!
