Postdoctoral Fellows Space

The IDM Post Docs meet at regular intervals in the Wolfson Pavilion Foyer. During these sessions, a speaker is usually invited to share their experiences navigating the academic landscape. These include people who followed non-traditional academic routes, or even routes leading them to a career outside of academics. 

The IDM co-sponsored a Career Development Workshop in 2020. Videos from various speakers, across the two-day offering, are available below. These were produced by one of the organisers, Martyna Scibiorek.

Below are links to some useful information and services offered by UCT to support staff and students who wish to pursue such non-traditional careers. 

Furthermore, the following are sources of non-UCT support:
