The Fall "Lunch & Learn" series for ASU postdoctoral fellows kicked off August 20 with “Choosing the Right Academic Career.” 

Professor Brad Allenby shared his experience navigating a difficult career path; from lawyer to corporate environmental engineer, and now, academic researcher while professor Joni Adamson shared her unique perspective as someone working in the humanities.  

This Zoom workshop was the first in a series on how to apply for academic jobs. The sessions are being offered to all ASU postdocs for the second year in a row.  The series will continue through October and will share insights on several aspects of applying for academic jobs. The full list of workshops is posted on the Postdoctoral Affairs News and Events page

Coming up:
