Postdocs at Princeton University

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

Welcome!

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.

330 Frist Campus Center Wednesday, March 4, 2020, 12 – 1:20pm Trans and gender non-conforming students are increasingly comfortable being out in the classroom but often are frustrated or let down by their instructors’ apathy, lack of knowledge or discomfort about their identities and experiences. Instructors who can address the needs of trans and gender non-conforming students in the classroom can make a huge difference in these students’ classroom success and their passion for the topic being taught. In this workshop facilitated by Princeton LGBT Center staff, attendees will learn vocabulary relevant to trans and gender non-conforming students, information on the campus climate for trans students, best practices for pronouns in the classroom, and a robust Q&A. We welcome AIs with any and all levels of experience working with trans and gender non-conforming students to attend. Lunch is provided.
