Information for Postdoctoral Fellows
- For currently employed MIC postdoctoral fellows we recommend the MIC Postdoctoral Association (mic-pda) as a first point of contact.
The University of Virginia is committed to assuring postdoctoral fellows of a rewarding experience of the highest quality. The Office of Vice President for Research has compiled much information for postdocs at UVA which assists postdoctoral fellows with preparation, training, planning, and decision-making for their professional pursuits within and beyond academe by offering seminars, advising services, web resources, and other resource referrals that advance their professional development. Fellows should refer to UVA’s policies for “postdocs” here.
The goal of the MIC-PDA is to network Postdocs within the department, fostering a collaborative academic and bioscience community.
- Foster the development of new opportunities for Postdocs
- Provide a competitive travel grant recognizing scientific excellence
- Offer assistance with CV, Resume and job application processes
- Recruit speakers from academic and bioscience backgrounds for exposure to various career opportunities
- Facilitate the exchange of expertise and resources among MIC Postdocs
- Establish an entity to advocate for Postdocs within the MIC department.
