For Postdocs

Welcome to UMBC and to the postdoctoral experience. As a postdoctoral scholar at UMBC, your research and leadership have opportunities to flourish. All postdoctoral scholars at UMBC are encouraged to participate in the community of scholars through various activities that are sponsored by the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs, the Faculty Development Center (select programs include postdocs), and the PROMISE Alliances for Graduate Education and the Professoriate (an NSF program that includes postdocs). The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs hosts regular “Postdoctoral Morning Coffees” on topics such as developing a teaching portfolio, developing research collaborations, and preparing for faculty interviews. Postdocs are asked to join the MyUMBC page for regularly updated information:
