Office of Postdoctoral Affairs

Section 7.20 of the Graduate School Handbook

Postdoctoral trainees are not Graduate Students and therefore are not directly overseen by the Graduate School. However, as part of Graduate Studies (advanced learning beyond the baccalaureate degree), postdoctoral trainees are overseen by the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs that reports to both the Office of Research and the Vice Provost for Graduate Students and Dean of the Graduate School. The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs prepares the next generation of research leaders by enhancing the postdoctoral experience at The Ohio State University through the promotion of career development opportunities, advancing the quality of the training environment for postdoctoral scholars, and providing resources and support to faculty members. 

Support is provided through (but is not limited to):

  • Funding the university’s membership to the National Postdoctoral Association (NPA).
  • Fellowship Awards Program.
