Abstract: As the competition for employment at the Ph.D. level continues to increase, the role of postdoctoral research position will become ever more important. However, for many, the process of finding, being, and surviving a postdoc seems a mystery. This panel aims to demystify this process (at least a somewhat) by allowing an open forum for the discussion of the role of a postdoc. The panel members for the discussion represent all stages of the postdoc process, ranging from about to start a postdoc to currently in a postdoc to recently having completed a postdoc. Drawing from this breadth of experience, panel members will discuss the major elements of this period of professional career development. This is a student committee organized event.
