About the Webinar

In many areas of physics, a postdoc is the natural first position following the PhD. If you're close to completing your physics PhD, you may have many questions about postdoc positions.  What kinds of postdocs are there and how can you find them? How can you optimize your cover letter, CV and research statement? How do committees decide whom to make an offer? What should you look for in an employer?

In this webinar Edmund Bertschinger, Physics Dept. Head at MIT, gives advice and strategies for successfully landing a postdoctoral position. Steve Rolston, co-director of the University of Maryland Joint Quantum Institute (JQI) moderates the discussion.
