This unique annual symposium, organised by the Postdoctoral Association (PDA) since 2017 and now in collaboration with the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs (OPA), gathers postdocs and grad students from across the greater Chicago area to connect, network, collaborate and learn about different PhD career paths. The goal of this event is to educate postdocs and grad students about careers in academia, industry, communications, business, and beyond. We bring in outstanding speakers and panelists to come share their experience to inspire budding postdocs and graduate students into fulfilling careers.
