Postdoctoral Professional Development Program Certification

The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs at Ohio State offers a professional development program that includes activities designed to enhance professional acumen and advance postdoctoral scholars careers. The goal of this curriculum is to equip postdoctoral scholars with the skills necessary to navigate their postdoctoral training and prepare for many different types of careers.

Each component of the certification program offers a number of options: in person events, live webinars, or static online resources. After completing the Basic component and 1 of the 2 Tracks (either Academic or Non-Academic), participants will receive a certification that can be listed on their resume or CV. The certification can be completed throughout your Postdoctoral period at Ohio State, but you must register within 6 months of your hire date to participate.
