Resources for Postdocs

Welcome Postdocs!

We are the Postdoctoral Association (PDA) and Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Affairs (OGPA) at The University of Chicago Biological Sciences Division (BSD). Our mission is to enhance the quality of the postdoctoral experience. 

This page contains information for new postdoctoral scholar and fellows.

We strongly recommend you attend one of our Quarterly Postdoc Info Sessions. Please contact your Postdoctoral Affairs Administrator with any questions or to register for the next session. Read the Weekly Bulletin to stay up to date on postdoc happenings.

A member of the PDA Welcome Committee should email you soon after we are made aware of your arrival to set up a time to meet. They will give you a Welcome Packet that contains helpful info about campus, being a BSD postdoc, and other important information. 

The home page contains links to health insurance, benefits, and policies and other important information.
