Welcome to the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs

The mission of the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs (OPA) is to prepare the next generation of research leaders by enhancing the postdoctoral experience at Ohio State through promotion of career development opportunities, advancing the quality of the training environment for postdoctoral scholars, and providing resources and support to faculty mentors.

We provide support in many forms:

  • Funding Ohio State’s membership to the National Postdoc Association (NPA)
  • Monthly postdoc orientations
  • Professional development events
  • Advocacy

To make the most out of your postdoctoral experience here, we recommend that you engage with the Postdoctoral Association (PDA) and that you contact us with any questions or concerns.
