Join us for a brownbag roundtable discussion of employment options for postdoctoral and post-MLIS scholars. Learn about the possibilities presented by grant-funded, short-term positions and how they can enhance your professional development.

Topics will include deciding to pursue fellowship positions, locating positions, kinds of work done in fellowships, transitioning into other employment and more.
