The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs (OPA) is a USF System office that supplements the role of the departments and schools in implementing policies and procedures related to the appointment, roles, requirements, and responsibilities of all postdoctoral scholars. The office strives to foster a robust postdoctoral community, provide opportunities to enhance the postdoctoral experience and future success for its constituents, serve as a dedicated resource for postdoctoral scholars, faculty and administrators, and promote the universityâ€™s dynamic program of postdoctoral opportunities while supporting postdoctoral scholars throughout their time at USF.
The objectives of the OPA that impact USFâ€™s postdoctoral scholars include: providing administrative support and guidance to USF colleges and postdoctoral scholars throughout the recruitment and hiring process; building collaboration among postdoctoral scholars, colleges, other USF departments, and graduate students; and offering professional development workshops for postdoctoral scholars and their mentors. The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs offers workshops on topics such as: Negotiating Faculty Positions, Alternatives to Faculty Positions, Demystifying the Publication Process, Oral and PowerPoint Presentation Skills, Finding Funding for Your Research and others. The Office hosts an Individual Development Plan workshop every year that assists postdocs with their career development.
