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 Postdoc Academy: Succeeding as a Postdoc is the first 6-week online course, which will start on June 22, 2020 and registration is now open!

This time of COVID-19 is challenging for us all, with the deep disruption in research and uncertainty for the future. We acknowledge that some of you may be working remotely, and some are not able to, and many may be in difficult environments. It may be that a course that provides professional development around Resilience, Working in an Intercultural Environment, and Career Planning is not appropriate, but perhaps for many of you, this can be an opportunity to learn and develop skills, too.
