Welcome to the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs!

The Graduate School's Office of Postdoctoral Affairs is designed to develop the next generation of independent researchers by enhancing the postdoctoral experience at the University of Kentucky. This is achieved by supporting postdocs needs with four main objectives:

Manage centralized postdoctoral administrative services

Faculty and administrators are invited to check out the For Faculty & Admin page for information about recruitment, appointments, and reappointments​

Provide career and professional development opportunities for postdocs

Current postdocs can learn about career and professional development opportunities on the Postdoc Development page, including the Peer Mentoring Groups initiative

Measure and track postdoc success

The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs is dedicated to assessing the success of postdocs by measuring postdoc scholarly output, fellowship success, and career outcomes

Build an integrated postdoc community

The Postdoc Orientation is built for new postdocs to learn about the postdoc community on campus. ​Peer Mentoring Groups allow University of Kentucky postdocs to develop skills while engaging with the community at large
