Postdocs

The postdoctoral stage, which by definition is transitory, is unique and has specific rewards and challenges. While you are still "training" and acquiring expertise, you also have to keep an eye towards the next step in your career and focus on gaining independence as a researcher.

In this section we share resources about: how to get a postdoc, how to achieve success during this career stage, and how to take the next step, whatever your chosen career may be. Here you will also find all events, forum postings, funding opportunities, jobs and news specifically focused for postdocs.

Don't forget that you can make use of our user search to establish relationships with other CienciaPR members with similar interests.

Puerto Rican neuroscientist and graduate student David Schwarz is part of Walk Again (Andar du Novo), a project that will allow a paraplegic Brazilian teen to control a robotic exoskeleton with their mind to execute the inaugural kick at the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

This event will be historical for many reasons. First, it is the culmination of years of research and the collective work of hundreds of scientists around the world, from engineers, to computer scientists, to neuroscientists.

We continually hear in the news discussion about topics of global significance such as energy or health reforms, national security, global warming, the food crisis, and the fiscal budget and its impact on innovation and competitiveness, among others. Although seemingly unrelated to each other, in order to be resolved all of these issues need to include considerations about science.
