Date Posted: Wednesday, January 17, 2024

"I want to thank the team for providing this opportunity to not only provide this wonderful course [from the pd|hub Collection for use with] our trainees, but for creating this wonderful community and inviting me to be a part of it."   - 2023 Implementation Site member 

Applications are now open for the second cohort of Implementation Sites for the pd|hub Collection: Foundation of Career Exploration for PhD Scientists. We welcome applications from universities, institutes, organizations, departments, training programs, and others who are committed to strengthening support for career planning for students and/or postdocs. The application deadline is March 1, 2024 at 11:59 p.m. PT. (Update: The application deadline has been extended to March 8, 2024 at 11:59 p.m. PT.)

The pd|hub Collection: Foundations of Career Exploration for PhD Scientists features curated, peer-reviewed educational models designed to guide and support PhD-level STEMM graduate students or postdocs as they learn about and evaluate a breadth of career options. These models lay the foundation, empowering participants to navigate the iterative, complex process of career exploration through upcoming and future career transitions.   

As an Implementation Site, you will receive full access and support to implement a model from this pd|hub Collection at your home organization. Ongoing support includes access to the following:

  • Implementation guides and annotated lesson plans
  • Training in key areas, such as developing an inclusive learning environment and facilitating using culturally-responsive approaches
  • Ongoing expert consultations within a community of practice to help you overcome challenges
  • Centralized evaluation tools and data collection to enable efficient, data-driven evolution of educational approaches

Words from Current Implementation Sites 

"As a person who is very new to this space, I found the trainings to be informative, welcoming, and supportive. I really admire (and benefitted from) the positive and collaborative environment that the pd|hub team was able to create in a virtual setting over a very short time." 

"Being an Implementation Site for pd|hub's Career Exploration Collection was beneficial across multiple dimensions. First, I knew that the curriculum had been developed, tested, and refined by a content expert and professional who understood the current landscape of graduate and postdoctoral training. Second, the community of practice provided a space for me and colleagues to discuss challenges and strategies for a successful implementation. Having a detailed curriculum and the community of practice resulted in a highly engaged cohort, and I plan to continue offering this program at my institution."
