Postdocs at Princeton University

Postdoctoral research associates and fellows are appointed through the Office of the Dean of the Faculty. Though appointed through the Office of the Dean of Faculty, we are not faculty but academic professionals. Rules corresponding to the different types of postdoc appointments can be found on this Policies & Procedures website. In coordinating your appointment at Princeton, your primary contact will be your supervising professor and her departmental administrative staff, however, questions regarding benefits can be addressed by the Office of Human Resources

Postdoc Events at McGraw Center

via Zoom Monday, December 7, 2020, 12 – 1:15pm RSVP to reserve a seat.

In this workshop, we will focus on how to make diversity, equity, and inclusion central to the process of designing a course. We will look at three interrelated aspects of course design: establishing what you hope students will gain from taking the course, creating thoughtful assignments to meet those goals, and using inclusive strategies for assessing these assignments. We will ask participants to reflect on current or future courses they might design, brainstorm how diversity and inclusion might form some of the foundations of that design, and share these ideas with peers facing similar challenges. You should leave this workshop with a sense of how you might design equitable and inclusive courses--especially useful for the job market and for the teaching transcript program--and also how you might apply these insights to teaching as an AI. 

We encourage all participants to have the latest version of Zoom installed on their devices before the workshop to ensure that they have access to all updated features the platform provides.

This is the second workshop of the Inclusive and Equitable Pedagogy series, and can also be taken as a standalone workshop. Feel free to come to one or all of the workshops in the series!

Facilitators: Kate Thorpe and Joseph Woldman

This event may be counted as a pedagogy workshop for the Teaching Transcript program. Event Type: Workshop For: GRADUATE/POSTDOC
