A Snapshot of Post-Doc Opportunities


This week we’ve uploaded a host of post-doctoral research opportunities, ranging from childhood learning and development to migration and mental health.  Post-doctoral scholars represent a growing and important part of the VPhD community and their career trends are well documented elsewhere–most prominently, at the National Post-Doctoral Association.

We also have an ongoing selection of post-doctoral positions within our user-generated job page here.

VPhD’s role is to help provide options and tools to both help people find post-doctoral opportunities as well as to transition out of post-doctoral programs and into professional careers.  If you are thinking about pursuing a post-doc pathway it may be helpful to ask: what is your ultimate goal?
