Postdoc Buddy Program

Being a postdoc often means you are going through a phase of life with high mobility and with many changes. The UTM Board of Postdocs is introducing a ‘Postdoc Buddy Program’ to facilitate the integration of incoming postdocs into UTM. In this voluntary program, we pair an incoming postdoc to a ‘buddy’ postdoc who is already settled at UTM. The buddy acts as a point of contact and helps the incoming postdoc to get acquainted with UTM by providing information on housing, academic and professional activities on campus, and other issues related to the move. The buddy welcomes the new postdoc soon after their arrival and shows them around campus. Through this program, we hope to make the integration at UTM easier and to create a supportive postdoc community on campus
