The University of Alberta (UAlberta) has approximately 600 Postdoctoral Fellows, all of whom are valued members of our university community. As such, we provide various supports and services to facilitate and foster our Postdocs’ research training and professional development to help prepare them for the next step in their careers.
UAlberta’s Postdoctoral Fellows Office provides a central resource for our Postdocs and serves as a liaison between postdocs, faculty, administrators, and staff. Our website provides information related to current and prospective postdoc appointments, frequently asked questions, and links to information, services and supports that may be of interest.
