Dear UCSF Postdocs,
I recognize that these are unsettling times with the significant public health challenge due to COVID-19. UCSF has been taking actions to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus, and we will continue to update you on guidance and policies that directly impact postdocs via email and this website. If you have not already done so, please bookmark and regularly check the UCSF COVID-19 website for the latest updates. You may also sign up to receive the latest updates by text message: Text 333-111 and enter "UCSF".
  • I am continually humbled by the many of you who have reached out and asked how you can help combat this pandemic. If you have a message that you would like to get out to fellow postdocs, I encourage you to post those announcements to one of the Postdoctoral Scholars Association listservs; you can sign up for free and post your message in less than a minute.
  • Many UCSF services that postdocs use are either reducing or closing their physical locations and shifting their services to remote access. Even though you may not see these folks on campus as much – I can assure you that they are still working hard to support you and maintain the same level of service to you.
My focus on the postdoc community remains the same. During this time, our initiatives and programming will continue, but you may see modified application deadlines, online programming, or virtual community-building events. I thank you for your patience as we navigate this transition.
Your health, wellbeing, and continued success remain my top priorities. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me if I can help you during this especially challenging period.
Wishing you safety and wellness,

Innovators, Practioners, Mentors, and Scholars

Postdoctoral scholars have been called “the invisible university," but anyone involved in academia knows the invaluble roles that postdocs fulfill at UCSF.

Here are some of the ways that the UCSF Office for Postdoctoral Scholars puts postdocs in the spotlight:

► Are you looking for a postdoc appointment at UCSF? See advice for finding a lab and mentor.
► Already started, but don't know where you're headed? Visit the postdoc timeline for advice on what you should be doing at various stages in your postdoc.

FACULTY WITH POSTDOCS: As of May 2019, there is a new faculty/staff website with resources for you.
