Moving into a new role and sometimes a new University can be unsettling and delay your progress as a postdoc. The PDC Postdoc Induction is designed to help postdocs identify the range of support and opportunities available at QUB as well as plan their next career move from the outset to make the best out of your time as a postdoc! By following the principles showcased in this induction, you can be sure that at the end of your contract, you will have improved your CV and will be a step closer to your dream career!
After the programme, we advise postdocs to review their career development plan regularly with a mentor, a postdoc friend or a group of postdocs. participants are handed a "Development Folder" with documents to help with their career development. The electronic versions of these documents can be downloaded here.
Dr Alice Dubois is the Head of the Postdoctoral Development Centre and, as such, is in charge of developing support for postdocs in collaboration with multiple University depratments. Alice is a planning freak (you can ask her previous PI and team!) and loves helping postdocs progress towards their dream career, in or out of academia. As a former postdoc herself, she knows how important it is to strategically seek and seize opportunities so that a two-years postdoc contract leads to much more than two additional lines on a CV!
