Professional Development Series

In collaboration with the Graduate Student Association and the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs, the Graduate School is pleased to offer a series of seminars and workshops to help graduate students and postdoctoral fellows develop and enhance their professional skills to succeed in their current positions and future careers. This series was developed with support from the College of Agriculture, Biotechnology, and Natural Resources, College of Liberal Arts, College of Science, the School of Medicine, INBRE, and the Desert Research Institute.

The list below also includes events from the UNR Libraries workshop series and the Associate Vice President for Research Brown Bag Series.
