Are you a new postdoc? Welcome to Madison! The UW–Madison Postdoctoral Association has its very own peer mentoring program for postdocs specifically geared toward welcoming new faces to the postdoc community.
The Badger Buddies program helps connect new postdocs with senior postdoc mentors to offer advice on life as a postdoc, including moving to the U.S., professional development, and embracing the transition to a new role and a new community.
This summer Badger Buddies will hold mentorship meetings every other week online with Microsoft Teams. New mentees can request access to the group for online support and meetings hosted by the Badger Buddies Mentors. Join to discuss any aspect of the transition to postdoc life, including unique COVID-19 issues, like working from home or staying connected during social distancing.
Check the UWPA Events Calendar for updated meeting times.
