Graduate & Postdoctoral Professional Development at Stony Brook

Build Your Path to a Satisfying Career.

Stony Brook University has a long tradition of integrating its research and educational missions. Graduate and Postdoctoral Professional Development strengthens and expands this tradition across campus by fostering collaboration among departments and programs to cultivate a vibrant and diverse community of scholars and develops programming to ensure that undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral scholars receive a well-rounded and multi-dimensional education.

To accomplish this, Graduate and Postdoctoral Professional Development seeks to:

  • Foster existing and new professional skills development opportunities for graduate students and postdocs;
  • Support the useful completion of Individual Development Plans (IDPs) for graduate students and postdocs;
  • With the Career Center, departments and programs, enhance resources and opportunities for exploration of a broad range of careers for our students and postdocs;
  • Provide support and advising for the development of individual fellowships and training grants; and
  • Maintain the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs, which supports and advises Stony Brook's postdoctoral scholars.

Among these offerings are the new NSF-funded PhD Career Ladder Program, the Planning Your Path to a Satisfying Career workshop series,  and various information sessions and workshops on external fellowships opportunities.
