Postdoctoral Administrators

Department admins are essential in supporting postdocs. They are communication pipelines, ensuring accurate records, clarifying policy guidelines, and facilitating access to resources. OPA works with all administrators to support training, trouble-shooting, and communication.

Postdoc administration is governed by the policy on postdoctoral scholars, guidelines and procedures on this website, and business practices that meet internal and external regulations, including foreign scholar immigration. Appointment-related actions are managed via PeopleSoft Postdoc web forms.
