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.
