Postdoctoral appointees are an integral part of the research endeavor at Duke University. Recognizing this, Duke established the Office of Postdoctoral Services on January 2, 2006. The Office of Postdoctoral Services is the central resource for postdoctoral appointees on campus, and serves as a liaison between postdocs, faculty, administrators, and staff. By providing a complete menu of services, from orientation seminars to career development programs to exit surveys, the OPS promotes postdoctoral training at Duke and prepares Duke postdocs for successful careers. Duke Postdoctoral Services works side-by-side with the Duke University Postdoctoral Association (DUPA) to address the needs and concerns of postdocs, and to plan and implement career development workshops and seminars. The OPS also partners with the Duke Career Center, the Graduate School, and the Faculty Development Program in the School of Medicine to provide programming relevant to postdocs, grad students, and junior faculty. To subscribe to the Duke postdoc mailing list, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with the message: subscribe postdocs. All members of the Duke community may subscribe to the Duke postdoc list using their duke.edu email addresses.
