Who We Are
Reporting to the universitywide Office of the Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs, and committed to advancing the University’s mission to conduct cutting-edge research and advanced training, the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs supports postdoctoral researchers and their faculty mentors by providing a central hub for professional development, knowledge sharing, and community building opportunities.
What We Do
The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs helps postdocs make the most of their time at Rutgers by providing central coordination of information and opportunities relevant to all postdocs, universitywide. Specifically, we:
Act as a main contact for postdocs and help them navigate postdoc life at Rutgers by providing information through welcome and information sessions and referrals to campus representatives and relevant institutional contacts across the university;
Help postdocs build community and expand their professional networks, starting internally, by creating opportunities for postdocs to connect with their colleagues across Rutgers.
How We Do It
In addition to guidance from the Executive Steering Committee and the Website Advisory Team, the office relies on a strong partnership with the Postdoctoral Association and with several units across Rutgers.
We also acknowledge support from the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation, which provides Rutgers with funding to support postdocs through training and workforce development grants.
