Career Development Symposium

2021 Symposium

Save the Date! The 2021 virtual edition of the Symposium will be held September 20th through September 24th, 2021 in celebration of National Postdoc Appreciation Week.

This unique annual symposium, organized 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.
