Upon completing their graduate training, many students will need to identify, apply for, and survive a post-doctoral fellowship before obtaining a faculty position. This panel is designed as an open forum for a discussion of the role of a post-doctoral fellow from the perspective of current post docs and recently hired faculty. The panelists will draw from their breadth of experience and discuss the major elements of their post-doctoral fellowships with respect to professional career development. They will provide recommendations and advice to those looking to pursue a post-doctoral position, elaborating on goals and expectations involved in completing a post doc successfully. Additionally, they will highlight how their post doc training opportunities compared to their graduate training experiences and current experiences in a faculty position.
