Professional Development for Postdocs
During National Postdoc Appreciation Week in September, about 30 CEE postdoctoral scholars representing different research areas gathered for lunch and were greeted by Department head Markus Buehler. Professor John Williams and research scientist Abel Sanchez PhD ’98 explained how to create successful websites, write professional online profiles, compile professional research portfolios and make videos to enhance their future careers. Future postdoc activities will include a town hall meeting on October 1. These activities complement other initiatives such as the Postdoctoral Teaching Fellowships that provide avenues for postdocs to contribute to our educational programs.
