UBC offers and administers programs that provide professional development to PDFs. Events offered by the PDFO will open for registration approximately 1 week in advance. Registration is required for all PDFO events.

The Postdoctoral Fellows Office is pleased to introduce Foundations of Career Planning, a three-part workshop program designed to provide postdocs with the support and resources required to establish the foundations of a post-PDF career, whether in academia or in industry. By the end of the program, participants will have developed through self-reflection the foundations needed to structure a development plan, put together a professional portfolio, and navigate the interview and negotiation process. Information about the program, including upcoming dates and registration, can be found on the Foundations of Career Planning page.
