Mission Statement

The Princeton Postdoctoral Council (PDC) aims to serve Postdoctoral Fellows, Postdoctoral Scholars and Research Associates at Princeton University by aiding in their professional development, fostering a sense of community and identity, and enhancing the quality of the postdoctoral experience.

Postdocs in Princeton

Postdoctoral research associates and fellows are appointed through the Office of the Dean of the Faculty. Though appointed through the Office of the Dean of Faculty, we are not faculty but academic professionals. Rules corresponding to the different types of postdoc appointments can be found on this Policies & Procedures website. In coordinating your appointment at Princeton, your primary contact will be your supervising professor and her departmental administrative staff, however, questions regarding benefits can be addressed by the Office of Human Resources. Recently the Trustee Ad Hoc Committee on Diversity released a report to determine ways to make the community more diverse and inclusive and provided recommendations for best diversity practices to support postdoctoral fellows.
