Post Doc Buddy Program

New to DCPDA since 2017, we are starting our own Buddy Program.

The idea of this is to connect incoming post docs with current, helping to assist on all things related to becoming a post doc at Dartmouth. We encourage all new post docs to take up the opportunity on having a buddy; we promise we will be of some use!!

Below we list all DCPDA buddies, take a look at their biographies, and reach out to any that you think most closely match your research/interests/background!

Current DCPDA Buddies

Jeff Stott

 I am a post-doc in the department of Psychological and Brian Sciences. I moved to the New Hampshire from Minnesota two and half years ago. I grew up in California and North Carolina, and went to college in New Mexico. I conduct behavioral neuroscience research that investigates the neural mechanisms of habit formation and reward learning. I co-chair the Social Committee for Dartmouth College Postdoctoral Association. You can find me at the events we organize. Feel free to reach out if you are a new postdoc at Dartmouth or DHMC and have any questions about living in the Upper Valley. Contact Jeff




Britney Privett

I am a first year postdoc in the Department of Biology (my lab is in the Life Sciences Center). I received my Ph.D. from Dartmouth, and I have been living in the Upper Valley for 6 years now. My research interests include the structure/function relationship of biological macromolecules (proteins) as well as metal homeostasis in plants. Outside of work I enjoy dancing with the Dartmouth Dance Ensemble, attending yoga classes, being outdoors, and spending time with friends and family.Contact Britney
