Office of Postdoctoral Affairs at DHSU


The Office of the SVPR announces the establishment of the DHSU Office of Postdoctoral Affairs (OPA).

Postdoctoral scholars ("postdocs") are individuals in a defined period of mentored research training following the achievement of their doctoral degrees (e.g., PhD, MD, DrPH) and are a vital part of our research enterprise. Establishing an OPA will help to create a vibrant culture of training and inclusivity, provide opportunities for career development, and increase funding opportunities.

The OPA will serve as a resource for postdoctoral researchers for:

  • Career and professional development through various programmatic offerings
  • Assist in identifying funding opportunities (fellowships)
  • Counseling (with respect to mentors, training, career opportunities, and university policies)
  • Social/networking events

The DHSU OPA will be under the administrative purview of the Office of the SVPR and run by Co-Directors, Dr. Lambert and Dr. Joshi. The OPA was launched on November 28th , 2022.
