Core Programs: The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs
The Core Programs at UW Graduate School are re-establishing a focus on postdoctoral fellow professional development this year. Through the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs, postdoc fellows from any program can find guidance toward campus resources to address career, appointment, mentoring, teaching and research skills. We get you to the right place – where the services you need are provided and where you can connect with others with similar questions and career development goals.
