Re-envisioning Postdoctoral Training in Neuroscience – A virtual workshop by NASEM

February 16, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The vision and approach for postdoctoral training has evolved over the years. Originally viewed as a few years of apprenticeship and an opportunity to establish skills and develop ideas in preparation for an independent research career, postdoc training has progressed to a state of limbo for some postdoctoral researchers, with longer training durations; uncertain career prospects; and variability in the training, mentoring, and professional status across the neuroscience ecosystem. These challenges have been further exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic (e.g., challenges securing funding, job seeking, and managing relationships with their mentors), resulting in a high-level of uncertainty and stress for postdoctoral researchers. This workshop—the fourth in a series—will explore the current postdoctoral training models in neuroscience and consider opportunities for modernization to meet the evolving needs in the field.
