International Postdocs

Information for International Postdocs

Rutgers, one of the most culturally diverse universities in the United States, offers many avenues of support for international students, faculty, and staff.

If you are an international postdoc, be sure to visit one the offices below.  They are your first point of contact and your home away from home.  Through one-on-one orientations, international postdocs receive important information about their visas and how to navigate the campus and state.  You'll also learn about upcoming events and opportunities to connect with other international scholars.
