Postdoctoral Affairs

Trainee Handbook

Message from Deans David Williams and Melissa Sturge-Apple

Welcome to the University of Rochester! Postdoctoral Affairs in Arts, Sciences and Engineering are handled by the Dean of Research and the Dean of Graduate Studies. We are here to facilitate all aspects of your professional training and are happy to answer your questions, advise you of resources available to the University of Rochester community and link you to other trainees in Arts, Sciences and Engineering and throughout the University. We hope you will participate in the many academic and professional development activities available during your time here. Ultimately, you will determine the skills and abilities you develop during this time, and we encourage you to take advantage of every opportunity for growth. We look forward to meeting you, discussing your scholarly interests, and working with you.
