Northwestern University, the University of Illinois Chicago (UIC), and the University of Chicago (UChicago) are excited to announce that applications are now open for the second annual Chicagoland Diverse STEM Postdoc Recruitment Initiative!
About the Initiative
The initiative has two components: professional development programming, and informational interviews. The programming will be held virtually on October 19–20, 2023, while the interviews (also virtual) will take place between October 19 – November 3. The programming includes:
- Overviews of the postdoc programs at Northwestern, UIC, and UChicago
- Demystifying the Postdoc Search: From Finding a Position to Negotiating an Offer
- Effective Interviewing
- Making the Most of Your Postdoc Experience
- And more!
Participants will be matched with faculty volunteers at each institution for informational interviews. Prospective postdoc participants will be responsible for scheduling virtual informational interviews with their faculty partners once they receive their match information in early October. Several faculty from a range of disciplines are participating!
