Resources for Postdocs

Welcome Postdocs!

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

Please contact the Assistant Director with any questions or to register for the next session. Subscribe to the Weekly Bulletin to stay up to date on important information and events. We strongly recommend you attend a Quarterly New Postdoc Info Session.

A member of the PDA Welcome Committee will email you soon after 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.
