Postdoctoral fellowships offer opportunities to develop independence, focus research interests, hone academic and transferable skills, and explore career pathways. Because postdoctoral positions are generally-short term, typically 2-5 years, it is important that you develop a training plan early on in your fellowship.

To help you stay on track, the Office of Academic Training and Outreach Programs (ATOP) has developed a Postdoc Timeline. This resource is a suggested framework by which to incorporate Research Training and Productivity, Professional Development, Career Exploration, and Community Building and Networking into your training. Also included is a list of services and programs offered by ATOP. Use these tools to help you achieve your professional and career goals. To download them as a PDF, click here!
