Due to the continued spread of the COVID-19 virus and the public health recommendations that come with it, Arizona State University will be celebrating with its graduates in the 2020 Spring commencement in a virtual, online ceremony. The format may be different, but our enthusiasm for celebration has never been more inspired and we encourage you to join us in honoring ASU graduate and undergraduate students the week of May 11. Planning is underway. For more details, please check back here for updates and additional information about online activities. Commencement FAQ page

When the Postdoc Office was established two years ago, we had three goals: To establish communication, to provide professional development and to develop community among ASU postdocs.

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.  The next conference, to be held March 31, 2020 will expand on those themes and include sessions how to be successful in those positions.  SAVE THE DATE!  March 31, 2020 in the Tempe Campus Memorial Union.
