Information for Postdoctoral Fellows

For currently employed MIC postdoctoral fellows we recommend the MIC Postdoctoral Association (mic-pda) as a first point of contact.

The University of Virginia is committed to assuring postdoctoral fellows of a rewarding experience of the highest quality.  The Office of Vice President for Research has compiled much information for postdocs at UVA which assists postdoctoral fellows with preparation, training, planning, and decision-making for their professional pursuits within and beyond academe by offering seminars, advising services, web resources, and other resource referrals that advance their professional development. Fellows should refer to the postdoctoral handbook for information and University policies.
