Thalyana about her talk

"I will advise students on how to be successful in their postdoc at any institution, no matter where they end up going, and I will provide examples from MSKCC and discuss why MSKCC may be a good choice for them for their postdoc. I will give examples regarding how to search for postdoc opportunities at MSKCC and how to be successful as a postdoc here. I will also share stories about international researchers who have gone on to pursue impressive careers inside and outside of academia in the US, back in their home country, or in another country, after their postdoc at MSKCC.

As I counsel all PhD students and postdocs currently at MSKCC, I have shared lots of advice with these trainees regarding their current and future careers, and I would like to share this same advice with the audience during the presentation, including:

  • Why consider doing a postdoc as part of your career
  • Types of career options, types of learning goals to have for your postdoc
  • How to be a strong candidate
  • How to find a postdoc
  • How to apply for a postdoc
  • How to choose a postdoc advisor and lab
  • How to learn about important resources at an institution
  • How to be productive and achieve your goals during your postdoc
  • How to utilize supportive networks during your postdoc
  • How to launch your career after your postdoc"

Thalyana's input will be followed by a Q&A session.

The event is moderated by Anne Schreiter (German Scholars Organization).
