PostDoc Appreciation Week

The Graduate School has several events planned to celebrate and further support our Post Doc communities. Please join us beginning the week of September 17th at Storrs Campus.


Stop by the Graduate School office between 7am and 8am on Friday September 21st for a delicious breakfast burrito while supplies last.

We know that there are more people finishing their PhDs, completing their PostDoctoral contracts, and wanting to move beyond Adjunct life than ever. With an over-saturated Academic job market, how can YOU stand out? Let us first provide you with a hearty lunch after which we will turn this challenging question to those who have been successful in recently transitioning to tenure-track or permanent teaching positions.
