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, serve as a dedicated resource for postdoctoral scholars, faculty and administrators, and promote the university’s dynamic program of postdoctoral opportunities.

Our goal is for each postdoctoral scholar to have an exemplary professional and personal development experience while at USF.
