The Office of Graduate Studies is dedicated to the development of postdoctoral research associates. To help postdocs make the most of their current career stage, we provide information, individual consultation services, networking opportunities, and social events.

Consultation services available to postdocs through our office include teaching development, with or without a teaching assignment; and job search-related services such as CV or résumé review and mock interviews. We confer with our Postdoctoral Advisory Council (PAC), a volunteer body of postdocs from disciplines across campus, to identify postdoc needs and work to find or develop solutions.

We celebrate the contributions of postdocs to the University’s research enterprise with our annual Outstanding Postdoc Awards, an annual Postdoc Appreciation Week, and a Postdoc/PI Picnic each spring. We also operate a need-based travel grant program specifically for postdocs wishing to engage in professional development activities such as presenting research at conferences.

Join the Postdoc mailing list.
