Graduating from a doctoral program signals the start of new adventures and challenges, and options for developing ones career. Assuming the role of a post-doctoral researcher is one option to consider upon graduation. One purpose of a postdoctoral appointment is to gain specialized expertise in a particular area that may prepare one for their career in that area. We formed a panel of post-doctoral scholars from an applied field of behavior analysis. The presenters come from multiple institutions and have unique experiences with regard to applying behavior analysis in their respective positions. In particular, the presenters have experience with severe problem behavior and drug abstinence programs. The goal of this panel discussion is for the invited presenters to provide insight into their experiences, their advisors expectations, and their goals following their term. At the end of their presentations, the panel will provide an opportunity for the attendees to ask questions in a question-answer format.
