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 serve as 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 (next offering: January 2023)
  • The Postdoc Academy: Building Skills for a Successful Career (next offering: May 2023)

You can check out an overview of both courses’ content here. To learn more about upcoming course offerings and how to enroll, visit this webpage.
