Thriving as an International Postdoc in the United States

If you are an international postdoc at Tufts, you should join this event sponsored by the National Postdoc Association!

National Postdoctoral Association Speaker Series

Thriving as a postdoc in today’s competitive climate is tenuous. International postdocs in the United States may face additional challenges due to a lack of clarity of expectations (hidden curriculum) and disadvantages due to marginalization posed by intersectional factors (immigration, socio-economic factors, etc.). In this workshop, we will introduce a framework for thriving as international postdocs. This framework will provide approaches for seeking information, resources, mentorship, and communities of support to identify and achieve professional and personal goals.

After this workshop, international postdocs will be able to:

  • Appreciate how intersections of identities influence their experience
  • Identify challenges that they may experience
  • Utilize a framework of approaches for thriving
  • Cultivate communities of support and mentoring to achieve diverse goals

When: Tuesday, August 23, 2022, 3 p.m. ET
