ORD has decided to hold a 2017 Post Doc Forum, bringing together as many of our post docs as possible for a day and a half of networking and interactions aimed at helping post docs advance their careers in science, as well as helping ORD to identify future actions that would be useful to develop and maintain a strong post doc environment. 

 For purposes of the Forum, we are defining ‘post doctoral fellows’ as all post-PhD term staff including R-authority, ORISE, NRC, AAAS, and ASPH fellows.  This includes some ~275 individuals across all ORD locations.

Post Doc Forum 2017 to include sessions on:

-Making the Most of Your Post Doc Experience
-Career Development
-Presenting your Online Persona
-What should ORD do to sustain a vibrant post-doc program?

While on-site attendance is strongly encouraged, for participants unable to attend in person, adobe connect will be available. Please register as a "virtual attendee" and webconferencing information will be sent out at a later time. Please only register for one ticket type per person.


Presentations are not mandatory, and please feel free to re-use posters from recent conferences. We are looking for presentations from every site and program area, so the more diverse the better! If you would like to present a poster at the meeting, please register as "attendee + poster". We have 60 slots available for poster presentations, posters will be accepted in the order they are received. The poster boards are 6 ft wide by 4 ft tall. The poster session will be open to all EPA-RTP employees, and offers an excellent opportunity to network with other EPA scientists.

Deadline for poster submissions are March 28th, 2017.


For additional information about the forum, including hotel/travel information, poster presentations, and a tentative agenda please go to:
