Institutional Partners

The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs relies on strong partnerships with the Postdoctoral Association at Rutgers and several units across Rutgers, including: 

Office of postdoctoral Affairs - Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences 

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

Center for Teaching Advancement and Assessment Research

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."

Centers for Global Advancement and International Affairs 

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. 

office of research and economic development

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.

Office of STEM Education

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.

school of graduate studies 

The School of Graduate Studies provides personalized academic support for approximately 5,200 Rutgers students enrolled in more than 150 doctoral, master’s, and dual degree programs across New Brunswick/Piscataway and Newark. Collaborating with international partner institutions—from Brazil, Puerto Rico, France, and Croatia to China, Indonesia, and South Korea—and with over 25,000 alumni spread across the world, ours is a global commitment to advanced, cutting-edge research and scholarship. Our school ensures rigorous academic standards, fosters interdisciplinary collaboration between graduate faculty and students, and oversees innovative professional development initiatives that prepare graduate students to succeed in diverse career pathways.

University Communications and Marketing

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

University Human Resources (UHR) provides several resources to postdocs, including but not limited to information about:
