The PDA and Graduate School presents 3 unique professional development opportunities the week of July 25th:
Postdoc Resume Workshop

Intended for active job seekers in non-academic careers, this 2 hour workshop will help you break down the process of transforming your achievements and skills into a professional and *short* resume. Presented in collaboration with the Postdoctoral Association, The Graduate School and the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs.
We will have a brief overview of the job application process, followed by some activities centered on your own job interests, and plenty of time to work on crafting your own resume and getting feedback.
Lunch is provided.
July Postdoc Orientation
*July 26, 2022 –
*Note this is at a different date than usual orientations
Team Science Skills Workshop
July 27, 2022 –
Room STEM 2130
The next generation of scholars will increasingly work in teams. Yet, team research skills are not often an explicit part of early career training. This in-person, 90-minute workshop will introduce graduate students and post-doctoral scholars to 5 core competencies for research team success. Through a mini-lecture and interactive exercises, we will learn from the emerging literature on research teams and from each other. Participants will leave with a mental framework for thinking about their teamwork, elementary skills in each of the 5 competency areas, a personal action plan for learning more, and new relationships with colleagues from across campus. Light refreshments will be provided.
Sponsored by: The Graduate School, the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs, and the Office of Research & Innovation
