Postdoctoral Fellows Orientation

Every October, the School of Graduate Studies hosts an Orientation event for new Postdoctoral Fellows (appointed within the past 12 months). The Orientation includes a formal lunch as well as presentations on academic and service matters that help with the transition to life as a Postdoc and on Memorial’s campus. The Orientation is also an important opportunity for Postdocs to network and form friendships with peer researchers.
