The university has all the resources you need
There are some on-line possibilities as well as meetings organized by post-doc association
You can take one course a semester, but have to pay fees. Not easily transferable to family.
Very good for professional development.
We were given excellent training for three days when hired and had more at intervals to brush up on interview skills. There was a completely different cohort group to train with for an additional training the second year. We also had to read and test of 12 modules dealing with professional ethics and behavior in the research domain that was interesting and elightening.
Most departments have support for professional development but since everything is grant funded, there's not much financial support for it.
I have learned a lot from my advisor here
There is great potential for career development. However, it suffers from a lack of coordination and formal training.
Zero professional development beyond free classes and ever those had to be taken outside of work hours.
Best thing: Your supervisor always tries to aid in your development by assigning intriguing projects, tasks, or objectives. I was also given the opportunity to attend a conference this semester but had to back-out due to familial obligations.
