Office of Postdoctoral Affairs

Our Office of Postdoctoral Affairs is dedicated to enhancing the academic environment for postdoctoral trainees. We foster a professional and collegial atmosphere by sponsoring a wide range of programs and activities that complement laboratory training.

In cooperation with our Research Fellow Advisory Council — which includes postdocs, faculty, and administrative staff — the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs organizes career development programs to support and promote each trainee’s individual career. We also develop policies that enhance postdoctoral life and training.

In addition, the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs hosts regular orientation meetings to help new and incoming postdoctoral researchers become familiar with our academic environment and the vast resources we make available.
