Office of Postdoctoral Affairs

Welcome to the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs (OPA) at the University of Idaho. Our office serves the needs of all postdocs at U of I, and provides a platform for personal growth and professional development. We work with students, faculty and staff, to provide useful resources for the postdoc community and to improve the overall postdoc experience at U of I.

Services include:

  • career services
  • management of benefits
  • grants and fellowships
  • mentorship
  • organizing social events

The Postdoc Office serves any researcher in any program or department at U of I who has a doctoral degree and is working in a training position under faculty mentorship.

This includes:

  • Postdoctoral Fellows
  • Research Associates
  • some part-time and visiting researchers

A recent survey of our current post-docs showed that they come from all continents, and that two-thirds of our post-docs are international. Our postdoctoral corps is diverse, with a female representation of around 40% of all postdocs.

Along with the Professional Development Initiative (PDI), we organize workshops to boost your career.

The University of Idaho is also a member of the National Postdoc Association (NPA). The NPA is the national organization that helps represent, support and assist post-docs develop their careers and improve their working conditions. The association holds regular meetings, webinars, workshops and produces other resources that positively impact post-docs individually and jointly.

As a U of I post-doc you can use this institutional membership to get your personal NPA membership sponsored (get a free membership).

We are working with the U of I Postdoctoral Association and the Graduate and Professional Student Associations to develop opportunities for mentoring undergraduate and graduate students, as well as develop teaching opportunities.

Get in touch if you are interested in participating.

The Office of Research & Economic Development (ORED) at U of I offers support with finding funding opportunities, develop and submit proposals, manage awards and disseminate the research results.

The University of Idaho provides multiple benefits for postdocs and their families — beyond what was covered in the initial Benefits Orientation you may have attended.

A service for postdocs, students, faculty, staff, and administrators. The Ombuds provides a safe place for anyone on campus to discuss workplace, student or general university issues, whether they are interpersonal, employment, ethical, discriminatory, or other concerns. The Ombuds is Confidential, Impartial, Informal, and Independent.

The Ombuds cannot guarantee confidentiality on email, but feel free to give them a call at 208-885-7668 or stop by GS-04 behind the faculty/staff lounge in Brink Hall. Barb Beatty is the University Ombuds.

Every year we organize an annual Post-doc orientation where we talk about issues concerning postdocs at our University. The orientation is announced on our webpage or via the post doc mailing list.

The OPA is sponsored by College of Graduate Studies (COGS) and the Office for Research and Economic Development (ORED). It is overseen by the Dean of COGS, Jerry McMurty.

You can contact the OPA at any time by email at postdoc@uidaho.edu, or just walk into the COGS office (Morrill Hall Room 104, Moscow campus).

In addition, the U of I soon-to-be Postdoctoral Association maintains a mailing list that we use to connect among post-docs, inform each other or organize interesting or social events to get to know each other.

To get added, please contact the list administrators at postdoc@uidaho.edu, or if you would like to contact all of us, use this same email and we will let you know how to do so.
