Office of Postdoctoral Affairs

Welcome postdoctoral scholars, fellows, and families! The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs seeks to enhance the postdoctoral experience through in-depth career and professional development. We are committed to preparing emergent leaders in academia, diversifying the professoriate, enriching faculty mentorship, and supporting alternate career pathways. This mission is an active partnership with the community at large, within and beyond our campus. Our collaboration contributes to a productive and meaningful chapter of life here at Penn State. Wishing you all the best!
