What's New




Welcome to Columbia University’s Office of Postdoctoral Affairs (OPA). Our Office was established in 2006 and with a mission to holistically support and assist Columbia University Postdoctoral Research Scientists, Scholars, and Fellows in their professional training and development; to offer in depth guidance and resources to the Columbia University community on matters pertaining to postdoctoral affairs.

We carry out our mission though:

We hope to be both a starting point for identifying resources available to you as well as a resource during your Postdoctoral training so that your time at Columbia is as rewarding and productive as possible. Therefore, we encourage you to explore and utilize this website and contact our office if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming OPA event!
