Welcome to the Onboarding Process
The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs extends a warm welcome to all new of our Postdoctoral Scholars. This website is designed to guide postdocs through the onboarding process to ensure a seamless integration into the University as you start your appointment. There are a few things to keep in mind as you get ready to join USC:
- New postdoc hiring is done within your school’s HR business unit or locally within your department. It’s important that you identify your point of contact to assist you during your hiring process. If you have questions about your hiring process, please contact your HR partner or school’s/department business unit.
- The Postdoctoral Scholars Benefit Plan (USC PSBP) is different from University staff benefits and designed specifically for postdocs. Your health benefits are administered through the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs (OPA). All information about your Postdoc Benefits can be found on our website. For questions, please contact OPA (email@example.com).
