MIT Career Services for Postdoctoral Scholars
In collaboration with the Office of the Vice President for Research, our mission in working with current MIT Postdoctoral Scholars (Postdoctoral Fellows and Associates) is to provide initial guidance and encourage self-management of career exploration including job search strategies for both industry and academic tracks. GECD Career Services provides MIT Postdocs with access to several services.
Postdocs are now able to take advantage of the same services offered to current MIT students. Please schedule an appointment for access to basic career services including appointments for CV/Resume review, interviewing strategies, and other career related topics such as career exploration, job search strategies, and considering job offers. Please note that Postdocs are not eligible for Drop-In services.
