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 and in-person learning communities, 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 first course, called “The Postdoc Academy: Finding Success as a Postdoc” and in-person learning communities begin on January 13th, 2020. Explore “Join” for more information on the course and in-person learning communities. Check out “Facilitate” if you’re interested in facilitating a learning community or adapting our content.
