Core Competencies for US Postdocs

The National Postdoctoral Association have six core competencies for postdoctoral scholars:

  1. Discipline-specific conceptual knowledge
  2. Research skill development
  3. Communication skills4. Professionalism
  4. Leadership and management skills
  5. Responsible conduct of research

The e-Grad School (Australia) appears similar in concept to the US NPA courses. Presumably the Australian e-Grad school courses are tailored to Australian requirements, but the details are not public. Therefore the US and UK competences may  be of more use.
