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

Welcome!

The Princeton Postdoctoral Council (PDC) aims to serve Postdoctoral Fellows, Postdoctoral Scholars and Research Associates at Princeton University by aiding in their professional development, fostering a sense of community and identity, and enhancing the quality of the postdoctoral experience.

Postdoc Events at McGraw Center

329 Frist Campus Center

Spring 2019 Graduate Student Academic Success workshop series
In this workshop for graduate students across disciplines, you and your peers will learn how to give constructive feedback to classmates, colleagues, lab-mates, and assistants; gracefully hear and implement feedback from others; and ask your peers (and advisor!) for useful and timely feedback on your own scholarship.  You’ll practice simple strategies to conquer the anxiety that can often come with “critique,” and will leave armed with tips and tools to give, receive, and elicit feedback positively, productively, and with purpose.

RSVP to reserve a seat.

330 Frist Campus Center
Wednesday, February 27, 2019, 3:30 – 5pm

Scientists experience the laboratory as the place where creative, open ended discovery happens. For undergraduates it can be an exciting place too, but labs don’t always run smoothly, and students need guidance to succeed in this learning environment. This workshop will prepare TAs to guide and interact with undergraduates in labs. Participants will discuss how to set goals that help students learn from lab, how to use grading lab reports as a tool to improve scientific writing, and how to run safe and efficient lab sessions. This event may be counted as a pedagogy workshop for the Teaching Transcript program.
