Postdoctoral Research Day

The Annual Postdoctoral Research/Career Conference is an inter-university career development event for postdoctoral fellows looking to develop their professional path in Québec. 

It is intended to bring together the Postdoc community from across Quebec to explore research career options through panel discussions, workshops, and networking opportunities. 

The Postdoctoral Career Conference is led by a dedicated team of Postdocs from Concordia University, École de Technologie Supérieure (ÉTS), Institute National de la Recherche Scientifique (INRS), Université Laval, McGill University, Université de Montréal (UdeM), Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) and Université de Sherbrooke (UdeS).
