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: 
  • Grant writing
  • Writing op-eds 
  • 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.
