NC State University Office of Postdoctoral Affairs

On behalf of the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs (OPA), welcome to North Carolina State University! Postdoctoral scholars are a vital part of the research endeavors at our university, and NC State University’s OPA was established on August 1, 2008 to serve as a clearinghouse for information related to postdoctoral appointments as well as to provide programs, resources and support to postdocs. As the biggest land-grant university in North Carolina and as part of the Research Triangle, this institution provides an array of resources for our postdoctoral scholars to prepare them for both a successful transition to our university community and to a career beyond their postdoctoral appointments. This website provides postdocs with information about a variety of topics, resources and opportunities.

The vision of OPA is to enhance, support and promote the postdoctoral experience so that postdoctoral scholars can contribute effectively to the research and scholarly endeavors of NC State University, develop their professional skills more intently, and move on to rewarding and successful careers.

In order to achieve the vision, OPA's mission is four-pronged:
* Create and strengthen the identity for postdoctoral scholars on campus
* Advocate for postdocs
* Develop and offer professional development services and opportunities
* Serve as a clearinghouse of information for postdocs

It is our goal to have your postdoctoral experience here at NC State University be both rewarding and enriching. If you have a question or need assistance, do not hesitate to contact the OPA Office by email at
