We've had a staffing change

Our esteemed colleague Linda Louie, PhD, Assistant Director, PhD Career and Professional Development, has started the next chapter in her career. We thank her for her incredible contributions to our community and wish her all the best in her new role at the Berkeley Lab!

The search for a new Assistant Director, PhD Career and Professional Development, has begun, and we plan to have this role filled in the fall of 2024. In the meantime, updates about our programs, services and resources will continue to be sent via email. If you are not currently on our email list, we encourage you to sign-up.

During this period of transition the wait for a Career Consultation Appointment may be longer than normal. However, frequent drop-in OCPD Office Hours designed to support students and postdocs with their career and professional development goals will be available. These office hours are an opportunity for UCSF graduate students and postdocs to connect with our staff one-on-one, or in small groups, and get answers to questions or feedback on application materials and build community. Learn more and see the upcoming OCPD Office Hours schedule.
