Professional Development & Career Resources

The department of Chemistry and Biochemistry is committed to supporting our graduate students in their professional development and career goals. In partnership with other groups on campus, we offer a diverse collection of professional development opportunities designed to connect you with information, resources, and people that can help you design a roadmap for success. Our alumni are interested in sharing their experience and helping you build a career network. We invite you to connect with them via our department’s LinkedIn group.

An Individual Development Plan (IDP) is a career development tool that can help you identify and communicate your research and career goals to your research advisor and other mentors. Our graduate students and post doctoral fellows have the opportunity to attend workshops to begin creating their IDPs, and meet regularly with their advisors to chart their progress and refine their goals.
