Postdoctoral Application Process - Webinars

APPIC and the Postdoctoral Workgroup are very excited to announce our upcoming series of webinars. The discussants, who are members of the APPIC Postdoctoral Workgroup and Postdoctoral Training Directors themselves, will address FAQs and then field questions submitted during the webinar.

The webinars will be held on the following dates. Click on the corresponding link to register. You will receive a confirmatory email once you register. In that email, click on the link “Check System requirements” to see if your computer is set up for the GoToWebinar platform.  You may need to download a plug-in to your computer which could be challenging for those in settings with locked computer networks. Checking ahead of time will allow for you to request such changes from your IT administrators. GoToWebinar is also available as an app for smartphones and tablets. Again, please check this ahead of time. Connectivity could be limited by the strength of your data connection.

Please register for one of the following webinar dates:
Please encourage your colleagues and mentors to attend one of these webinars. If you are not able to make any of the scheduled webinar times, a link to a recording will be posted within a few days of each webinar. The more informed the postdoctoral community of applicants and training directors is, the smoother the process will be.  APPIC wishes you a very successful postdoctoral application process! With the exception of the last webinar which is just for Traning Directors, the content is nearly identical.
