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.

A pilgrimage through Puerto Rican Science

Francis Heber Gonzalez's picture

 

To be in a cold, inhospitable climate, with your colleagues telling you stories of people disappearing under the snow in winter storms makes anyone second guess his decision to leave the beaches of my homeland for the cold winters of Boston.

After moving to that inspiring and musical city, somehow I learned of an initiative called Ciencia Puerto Rico, and they  had created a website. I thought: "More boricua nerds, good! What a great idea!" So I went to the site, created a profile and invited all my friends from the Chemistry Department at UPR-Mayaguez to join.
