The QB3-Berkeley Graduate and Postdoc Career Development office was launched in early fall 2018 to strengthen professional development support for graduate students and postdoctoral researchers in the biological sciences at Berkeley.
The office will help these trainees explore career options that utilize their scientific training and develop the foundational skills required for effective career planning and transitions to post-graduate careers. In partnership with faculty, and collaborating with other campus entities, the QB3-Berkeley Graduate and Postdoc Career Development office will promote access to career information, skill development, and experiential opportunities, and work to enhance students’ and postdocs’ connections to a range of career paths and organizations within academia and in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors. Contact: Rosanne Lurie, Director, firstname.lastname@example.org
Career labs, workshops and panel events are designed to help QB3-Berkeley doctoral students and postdocs develop their competencies in career planning and effective job search strategies.
