A qualified tax accountant is available at the times below to answer questions about tax filing. Postdocs who wish to meet with the consultant are advised to fill out   THIS FORM. Enlisting his further services for preparing and filing taxes must be arranged separately and may incur a fee.

4.  Career Planning Workshop and Career Mentoring Group Start Feb 15

You are invited to a workshop on   Planning Your Path to a Satisfying Career . Postdocs will learn strategies to explore a range of career interests and develop an action plan to strengthen the skills required for pursuing their ideal career. Participants will leave the workshop with a first draft or update of their Individual Development Plan (IDP).

Postdocs who attend this workshop will also be prepared to join a new career mentoring group from the   PhD Career Ladder Program . We're very excited to adapt our NSF-funded PhD Career Ladder Program (PCLP) for postdocs into a streamlined four month program, led by postdocs, for postdocs. Following the PCLP model, a small group of postdocs would meet once a month for a structured series of peer-led career preparation steps, from self-assessment, to skill identification, to informational interviewing, and resume/CV refining. The first exercise for PCLP is the Planning Your Path workshop on Feb 15th. 

DATE:  February 15, 2018 
TIME:  3-5 pm
LOCATION:  Wang Center Room 201
