All elements of the training program will be open to post-doctoral trainees. Postdocs will rarely elect to take classes for credit, but we do require that they participate in and contribute to the Concepts and Techniques courses and assist in the teaching of Professional Ethics for the Bio-behavioral Sciences.
CISAB offers informal sessions on a regular basis that stress professional skills, e.g., how to review a research proposal or manuscript, how to write a letter to apply for a job, how to prepare a job seminar, or how to negotiate for a position. These sessions will be of particular use to postdoctoral trainees seeking permanent positions.
Postdoctoral trainees will be asked to serve as role model researchers sharing their advice and their talents with younger students and while becoming more effective mentors themselves.
