The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs relies on strong partnerships with the Postdoctoral Association at Rutgers and several units across Rutgers, including:
The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs in Newark was established in 2001 in the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences (before Rutgers' 2014 merger with most of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey).
- The Office partners closely with the new Office of Postdoctoral Affairs to provide support for RBHS postdocs.
The Center for Teaching Advancement and Assessment Research (CTAAR) supports teaching and learning through a variety of areas: pedagogy and faculty development, assessment programs, instructional technologies, classroom technologies, and information technologies.
- CTAAR partners with the office to offer teaching workshops for postdocs, like "Teaching Portfolios."
The Centers for Global Advancement and International Affairs (GAIA Centers) create connections without borders between people, ideas, and resources. The centers have worked to define and attain the university’s internationalization priorities through funding opportunities, educational programs, cross-cultural and local-global events and trips, and services.
- The GAIA Centers are a "home away from home" for many international postdocs.
At the Graduate School–New Brunswick (GS-NB), our faculty and students are immersed in discovery and innovation. Our school enrolls approximately 4,400 students in 61 doctoral programs and 74 master's programs. Drawn from academic divisions across Rutgers University–New Brunswick, our faculty are grounded in the arts and sciences, as well as several professional fields.
- Thanks to the GS-NB, postdocs across the university benefit from career development opportunities like National Research Mentoring Network NRMN-CAN.
The Rutgers Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences (GSBS) has doctor of philosophy (Ph.D.) and master of science (M.S.) programs at two locations, and draws its faculty primarily from the medical and dental schools at those sites: New Jersey Medical School and Rutgers School of Dental Medicine in Newark, and Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in Piscataway/New Brunswick. The programs at the two locations differ according to the research interests of the faculty, however, their mission is the same; to develop scientists who will contribute new knowledge in the biomedical disciplines through creative research and scholarship.
- Thanks to the GSBS, postdocs across the university benefit from key career development opportunities like iJOBS and INSPIRE.
The Office of Research and Economic Development provides services across Rutgers to support the faculty’s research and strategically leads the university's economic development activities. Research is a fundamental aspect of the university's mission. Our research is sponsored by federal and state agencies, corporations, and foundations, which provide research experiences for undergraduates, support for graduate assistants and postdoctoral researchers, and state-of-the-art equipment and facilities at each of our three locations.
- Postdocs benefit from grant writing workshops and support through the Research Portal, a one-stop-shop for research support.
The Office of STEM Education serves to catalyze and support departmental and interdepartmental efforts and related activities targeted at improving the quality of core education in STEM.
- This office offers several ways for postdocs to expand their community outreach portfolio through activities such as the Science Bus Explorer and Geology Museum.
University Communications and Marketing (UCM) guides and supports Rutgers people as they spread the word about their programs, people, initiatives, and achievements; help the public learn about and access Rutgers' many resources; and help the media tap Rutgers experts, news, and events.
- UCM played a key role on the Website Advisory Team and in the development of this website, which included a professional photoshoot of current postdocs at work in and outside of the lab at Rutgers.
University Human Resources (UHR) provides several resources to postdocs, including but not limited to information about:
