ASU Postdoctoral Career Conference


A group of ASU Postdoc students talking and collaborating amongst one another

The purpose of the ASU Postdoctoral Career Conference is to give postdocs the opportunity to explore multiple career pathways, and to help postdocs be successful in their efforts to obtain the jobs of their choosing.  The first Career Conference was held in May of 2019, and featured three tracks of career information: entrepreneurship, industry, and academia.  Since then, we've had two virtual conferences, and a variety of topics and speakers.  The next conference will expand on those themes and include sessions how to be successful in those positions.  SAVE THE DATE!  April 14, 2022 in the Tempe Campus Memorial Union.
