Ph.D. Careers

Career and professional development is an important part of your graduate student and postdoctoral training. At UAB’s Office of Postdoctoral Education Ph.D. Careers, we aim to offer a variety of programs and services to help you make the most of your tenure here. Whether you are just starting out in your graduate program or postdoc career or moving on to the next phase in your professional career, we can help.

The Office of Postdoctoral Education, Career and Professional Development Services, and the Graduate School are here to service as resources for you as you plan, develop, and implement the strategy for your career. As I’m sure you are aware, this is not something that you can do overnight, and this is not something that anyone expects you to have figured out. But that is ok! So take the time you need. Explore yourself, explore your options, and explore what we have to offer. You have spent a significant portion of time pursuing education, so preparation is no stranger to you. Career development also requires planning and preparation. We have a variety of options and resources to help you get prepared for taking that next step, and achieving your goals.

We look forward to helping you, partnering with you, and seeing you succeed.
