Welcome to the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs! The University of Kansas Medical Center, as part of its continued commitment to the success of postdoctoral scholars as an integral part of the research enterprise of the institution, created the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs in 2007 to serve the over 100 postdoctoral scholars who are part of the campus community. The office is part of the larger Office of Postdoctoral Affairs and Graduate Studies, which is located within the Office of Academic Affairs. Together with the KUMC Postdoctoral Association and the Postdoctoral Advisory Committee, the office develops non-research related training that enhances a postdoctoral scholar's development as well as oversees policies and procedures, advocates on behalf of the postdoctoral community, and leverages campus and community resources to ensure the success of scholars both during their postdoctoral appointment and in their transition to the next phase of their career.
To serve as a central platform for information, resources, and opportunities that ensure the best possible experience for postdoctoral scholars at the University of Kansas Medical Center.
The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs will foster an environment that attracts, retains, grows, and empowers the most talented new scholars to become leaders in science and medicine.
