The goal of this program is to provide a formal system for postdoc career advising, including a lightweight version of a PhD thesis committee, comprised of your research advisor plus a career advisor of your choice. The program is not obligatory, but will be offered to all incoming postdocs when they first arrive.
Once your appointment has been approved, let Annie Yamashita know if you’d like an initial meeting with Bill Noble, who oversees the program
Bill will give an overview of the UWPA, the Genome Sciences postdoc group, various other useful items, and talk about career advisors
The postdoc may decide to opt-out of the program
Otherwise, the postdoc has 90 days to recruit a new career advisor
Remember to inform both Bill and Annie, so that a proper list may be maintained for annual meeting reminders
