Bénédicte Gnangnon, PhD
Postdoctoral Associate
Boston University
Postdoctoral Affairs

Béné is a Postdoctoral Associate in the Professional Development and Postdoctoral Affairs (PDPA) office at BU. She assists the PDPA team in developing, organizing, implementing, and assessing the professional development training platform PhD Progression. She also manages and supports PhD students in their use of the EMSI/Badgr Skillsmatch, a software that allows its users to make an inventory of the skills they possess based on their education and professional experiences, as well as the ones they wish to acquire. The software then matches the users’ background with career areas in which some of the skills they selected are in demand, and highlights skills that need to be gained to successfully transition into a given area.
Prior to working at BU, Béné earned a PhD in molecular & cellular biology and conducted postdoctoral research on malaria, using a combination of wet lab (cell culture assays) and dry lab (mathematical modeling) approaches. She also served in a couple of PhD student/postdoctoral associations, where she contributed to develop a career transition MOOC for PhDs, and to organize and host a variety of events on themes linked to professional development and career exploration and transition.
