Postdoc Events

To encourage and foster the success of postdoctoral fellows, the University of Miami created the Postdoctoral Programs Office (PPO). The PPO is committed to providing postdocs with a supportive environment, resources, workshops and seminars, to enrich the training experience and facilitate personal growth and professional development for successful future careers.

Throughout each year, postdoctoral fellows are offered a series of intensive workshops involving a combination of lectures, discussions, readings, writing exercises, and teaching and mentoring experience to enhance my professional development.
