All post-doctoral fellows will participate in a bi-monthly skills development series over the course of an academic year. Learning from faculty and high-level practitioners both inside and outside the William & Mary community, fellows will hone their skills in such areas as:
Working with the military and government agencies
Applying academic ideas and methods to policy solutions
Engaging the think tank and NGO world
Publishing academic manuscripts
Giving official government briefings
Managing a research lab
These workshops will allow post-doctoral fellows to get to know one another and encourage multidisciplinary collaboration. Additionally, post-doctoral fellows will work one-on-one with designated mentors to develop skills specific to their own research areas. Beyond the structured program, GRI offers a range of research seminars and programming where fellows can present their own work and learn about the research interests of other scholars at GRI and William & Mary.
