Professional Development Series

This series is designed to complement courses already offered to postdocs and to align with three National Postdoc Association (NPA) Core Competencies: Communication Skills, Professionalism, and Leadership and Management Skills. The NPA expects all postdocs to seek proficiency in these areas in order to achieve intellectual and professional independence and success.

Goals of the PPDS Series

  • Introduce skills and tools needed to excel as a professional.
  • Provide knowledge and tools to strengthen communication, leadership and management skills.

The PPDS Program is currently being updated and restructured. Future series dates are TBD. Please check back here for updated information on course dates and availability.
