Map Your Postdoc Journey
Postdoctoral training is the bridge that connects your life as a student and your life as an independent scientific professional. Your postdoctoral journey is time-limited, lasting one to five years, and will be over before you know it. With so much to do and so little time: How do you decide what to accomplish during your postdoc?
The National Postdoctoral Association (NPA) has identified 6 essential milestones for all postdoc training. We've adapted these milestones into six questions to map your postdoc journey. Like any good map, we've added signposts--click each question below to reveal Stanford resources and programs to reach that milesotone.
