Career Development

A postdoc shares her research at a poster presentation

The Annual Postdoc Symposium gives postdocs a chance to present their work to colleagues across MSK.

Memorial Sloan Kettering is committed to helping postdoctoral researchers acquire the skills and resources they need to launch successful careers. This support takes many forms, including mentoring, prizes, and an array of workshops and courses.

Our experienced career services staff offers personalized consultations to postdocs at all stages of the job search. They can provide one-on-one consultations in the following areas:

  • career exploration
  • job searches
  • resumes, CVs, cover letters, and teaching statements
  • interviewing skills
  • tips for evaluating and negotiating job offers

We also sponsor regular networking events with MSK alumni working across various sectors, as well as site visits to companies that regularly hire MSK postdocs.

As we track the career outcomes of our postdocs we are able to effectively tailor our programming to the latest trends in the job market.
