Postdoctoral Office

Are you supervising people in your research group?  

Nearly 20% of postdocs are supervising staff and many more supervise undergraduate and graduate students in their research environments.  How do the new Alberta labour laws affect you?  If there is an incident, will you be held legally responsible? Can you say 'no' to supervising people?  Is there training available to you? How does sexual misconduct fit into safety?  

If you are unsure about the answers to any of these questions and are formally or informally supervising people, this quick lunch hour session is highly recommended.

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.
