Welcome to the Postdoc Academy!

Professional development for the postdoctoral community

The Postdoc Academy is a comprehensive online and in-person program built on the National Postdoctoral Association core competencies to support skill development throughout postdoc training, from orientation to next career step.

This program consists of two (free!) online courses built specifically for postdocs. The content uses inclusive, active-learning approaches to be a resource for the postdoc audience directly, as well as postdoc offices and associations. The available courses include:

  • The Postdoc Academy: Succeeding as a Postdoc (first course)
  • The Postdoc Academy: Building Skills for a Successful Career (second course)

The second course will launch in July 2021 via edX. Please continue checking our website for the latest details about content and registration.
