USC recognizes the importance of assisting postdoctoral scholars as they develop into independent investigators. It is our goal to assist junior scholars, who have completed their doctoral degrees (Ph.D., Sc.D., M.D., D.D.S. and equivalent doctorates), by preparing them for full-time academic or research careers, under the guidance of senior scholars.

New Postdoc Orientations

New postdoc orientations are held during the first week of each month, alternating locations between the University Park Campus and the Health Sciences Campus. Orientations are immediately followed by a coffee meet-and-greet with the USC Postdoctoral Association.
