Incoming Postdocs

Welcome to USF

Postdoctoral scholars are important members of the University of South Florida community. Much of our recent rise in prominence is due to postdocs advancing scientific knowledge, using innovative practices in the classroom and contributing to a better, more informed world.

The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs works to serve postdoctoral scholars by:

  • Providing professional development opportunities
  • Cultivating a community of scholars
  • Assisting with the navigation of USF policies and resources
  • Advocating for postdocs across USF

For questions, please contact the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs at or directly reach out to our Director or Administrative Postdoc.
