Individual Career Advising

The Office of Postdoctoral Studies is not currently offering individual advising appointments while we recruit a new Associate Director for Career Development. This page will be updated when services resume.

In the meantime, please take advantage of the following free career resources for postdocs:

Individual Career Counseling Appointments
The UW-Madison Employee Career Counseling Program offers free appointments to all UW employees including postdocs. The program helps individuals explore, plan, and manage their career paths to achieve professional success and satisfaction. Please note that this office does not provide advice about the faculty job market (see resources below instead). Learn more about employee career counseling and book an appointment here.

Beyond the Professoriate
This online career development platform for PhDs includes recorded webinars about both the academic and non-academic job markets, a video library of interviews with PhDs in a range of careers, and training modules on career exploration and planning. Access this resource for free via our institutional subscription here (select UW-Madison).

Faculty Job Market Resources
For postdocs pursuing faculty positions, please find a curated list of resources here for your job search. We also recommend that you regularly check the For Future Faculty Series webpage here as we update that listing whenever new training opportunities arise.
