WE11: To Post-Doc or Not to Post-Doc

Richelle Thomas

This workshop was meant to help current graduate students and graduate degree holders negotiate if they should complete Post-Doctoral research position in order to achieve their career goals. The panel was meant to show the benefits, drawbacks and limitations of Post-Doctoral positions in an effort to allow the workshop participants to decide if it is applicable for their professional journey. The workshop consisted of a panel of a current Post-Doc, Marcella, a completed Post-Doctoral researcher Diane Peters and a current faculty member who completed a Post-Doc Laura Fabris. The moderator, Richelle Thomas, directed the lively discussion. The panelists were very open about their experiences and attendees left the workshop with a realistic glimpse of the Post-Doc life and options thereafter.
