This commitment recognizes that the postdoctoral training period is a crucial time in the development of postdoctoral researchers as scholars. However, the nature of a postdoctoral position makes it difficult for most individuals to obtain funding for professional development that does not align directly with the goals of the lab/position in which the individual is hired and that increasingly there is a need and desire for postdocs to engage in professional development activities that augment their training and best position them for an increasingly competitive job market.
