Professional development

  • Caltech classes: postdocs are eligible to attend any course taught at Caltech for free! If you think you would benefit by learning another area of science, or that an extra language would be valuable for your career see what's available at the office of the registrar (click on "course schedule"). To formally register for a course you must first visit the office of the registrar to get a form and take this to the course instructor to be signed then take this to the Dean of Students and to the Bursar for signatures and return it to the office of the registrar (fortunately apart form the instructors they are all located in the CSS!)
