2022 #Postdoc Fundamentals SACNAS Session

We produced a postdoctoral professional development session at the 2022 annual conference of the Society for the Advancement of Chicanos and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS). At this conference in Puerto Rico, our #2022NDiSTEM session was:
Postdoc Fundamentals: Selecting a Training Experience to Match Your Career Goals
Advanced PhD graduate students will learn how postdoctoral training can enhance their career goals. Presenters will describe 1) different postdoc types, 2) advisor & project selection considerations, 3) sources of funding, & 4) resources for professional development such as MinorityPostdoc.org and the CienciaPuertoRico Yale Ciencia Academy.
