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

via Zoom Tuesday, January 26, 2021, 12 – 1pm Sometimes the features in Zoom are too limited, or don’t adequately capture an experience we create in our physical classrooms. Conversely, there are so many online tools, how do you pick one that suits your course, let alone the activity you’re creating for your students? In this 30-minute workshop, we’ll introduce Ideaboardz and Google Jamboards, share some resources available to you through the McGraw Center, and highlight some considerations that will help you select the tool that’s right for you. After the workshop, our facilitators will stay for an additional 30-minutes to take any specific Zoom questions you may have. If you’ve never used Zoom before, we suggest attending the Zoom Basics workshop or watching Zoom Meetings for Education in advance.

This session does not count for the Teaching Transcript program. Event Type: Workshop For: FACULTY, GRADUATE/POSTDOC

via Zoom Wednesday, January 27, 2021, 9:30am – 12pm An Inclusive Teaching at Princeton event, co-sponsored with the Lewis Center for the Arts and the Office of Institutional Equity and Diversity

RSVP to reserve your seat.

American society seems to be getting more polarized and more violent, but teachers-at every level-feel more trepidation than confidence about addressing issues that are even slightly controversial. Based on Koritha Mitchell's expertise regarding how violence functions and the purpose of all forms of violence (from hate speech to physical attacks), this workshop will address how we teach, and teach charged topics, in a deeply polarized moment. Mitchell's workshop empowers faculty to develop strategies that allow them to be proactive rather than reactive, to operate from a clear affirmative stance rather than respond only when a classroom norm is violated. Instructors will leave with conceptual frameworks they can use to assess the strategies they are currently using in the classroom, as well as to develop additional strategies. As important, you will leave the session with activities you can immediately take into the classroom.

During this 30-minute workshop, we will introduce and review the Share Screen and Annotate features in Zoom. You will interact with both features and hear about Zoom settings to be aware of. We’ll share how your students might use these tools. Come join us to test these features before you implement them in your online classes. After the workshop, the facilitators will stay for a 30-minute Q&A to address any specific Zoom questions you may have. If you’ve never used Zoom before, we suggest attending the Zoom Basics workshop or watching Zoom Meetings for Education in advance.
