The Office of Postdoctoral Education now offers Postdoctoral Orientation events two to three times per year to serve new MU postdocs as well as returning postdocs who would like to learn more about MU benefits, resources, and the MU Postdoctoral Association. The next Postdoctoral Orientation event is February 7, 2020 (9:00-11:00 am). Click Here to register for orientation. Coffee and pastries will be provided! Contact Dr. Lissa Behm-Morawitz, firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Postdoctoral fellows should also check with their department to see if there is an orientation session you should attend in your College/Division for your discipline. Various orientation events are held throughout the year in divisions/colleges across campus.
In addition, there are some campus events to help welcome new postdoctoral fellows to campus. Postdoctoral fellows can attend New Faculty Orientation in August, Postdoctoral Appreciation Week events in September, and MU Postdoctoral Association meet-n-greets throughout the year.
The University of Missouri Postdoctoral Handbook provides an overview of life as a postdoc on our campus. Information on where to find policies, procedures, and resources related to postdoctoral life is included.
