September 21 to 25, 2020 is National Post-doc Appreciation Week! In recognition of the significant contributions post-doctoral fellows are making to research and the engineering Faculty’s community, we are hosting a panel specifically for you! Join us for an in-depth conversation on how to make the most of your post-doctoral fellowship. Hear from post-doctoral alumni who are working in academia and industry about how to effectively lead your research projects (including remote research and collaborations), plan for your career after your fellowship, and approaches to balance work and family responsibilities. You will leave this session with strategies and tips to succeed in your post-doctoral fellowship, and avoid common mistakes and pitfalls.

Moderator: Jonathan Turner, Institutional Strategic Initiatives Officer, Division of the Vice-President, Research & Innovation

Special Guest: Lisa Haley, Senior Advisor & Manager, Program Completion and Postdoctoral Services, School of Graduate Studies
