Mentor a postdoc

Postdoctoral professional career development: Self-assessment questionnaire

The self-assessment questionnaire is intended specifically for Postdocs. It is meant to facilitate an annual assessment of their current position, aid reflection on their accomplishments and help identify what is required for progress towards their professional goals.

After the postdoc has finished their self-assessment, we recommend they discuss it with a resource person like yourself, in your capacity as a department head, PI, professor, or mentor. With this feedback, you can begin to refine a proper professional career development.

As a senior scientist, feel free to encourage the use of this tool to the postdocs active in your teams, and when doing so, feel free to use the reference guide (below), to help you give the most constructive feedback possible.
