The first step in ensuring a successful Postdoctoral training program is finding the right academic supervisor with whom to conduct your independent research.
In searching for and selecting your mentor, you may find yourself asking:
- What are my current and future research interests? What is my career aspiration?
- Am I in search of working with a newer faculty hire, or an established and well-connected researcher?
- Do I work best with close mentorship and guidance, or do I prefer an independent work environment?
- In which careers are former postdocs from this mentor's group currently employed?
Once you have established your own career and training goals, you are better prepared to finding a supervisor with similar research interests.
