Welcome to the FAS Office of Postdoctoral Affairs!

We serve over 1,200 postdocs, college fellows, and research associates across the Faculty of Arts and Sciences (FAS), the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, and all Harvard-affiliated schools, centers, and institutes in Cambridge.

Our mission is to help our postdoctoral community to reach their career and professional development goals, and to serve as a resource to campus constituents on postdoc life and work.

"Post dock, a safe harbor is in sight!"
(For those of you who may have missed the visual pun)


Please note: The FAS Office of Postdoctoral Affairs does not process applications for postdoctoral or College Fellow positions. Postdoctoral positions are advertised in scholarly publications, online, and on departmental websites. Many postdocs find positions by contacting Harvard faculty members directly.
