Information for New Postdoctoral Scholars
There are a number of ways to connect to the postdoctoral scholar community at UCLA. Among the most effective ways to learn about events and information relevant to your postdoctoral appointment is to sign up for the UCLA Postdoctoral Scholar Mailing List.
Postdoctoral Scholar Orientation
Meet other postdoctoral scholars while learning about your appointment and various resources available at UCLA by attending our quarterly virtual Postdoctoral Scholar Orientation!
Topics include: Q&A for postdoctoral appointments and policy, joining the UCLA community, campus resources, support networks, professional development, resources and networking, and union representation. During the interactive workshop portion, we will help you develop a plan about which types of professional development resources to prioritize and how to map out a professional development plan that takes into account your career goals, your current and future needs, resources available, and the time you have left in your training/appointment.
Spring Quarter: Monday, April 4th from 1-2pm (Pacific Time) via Zoom.
Please RSVP here.
