Every year, UCLA hosts approximately 1,400 postdoctoral scholars (postdocs) from across the world. Engaged in advanced training and research, UCLA’s postdocs make significant contributions to the university’s educational and research missions.

As members of the UCLA community, postdocs have access to a world-class university and its resource network. This website is intended for prospective, new, and current UCLA postdocs who are looking for information about their position and benefits or about resources available to them at UCLA.

 


UCLA is celebrating National Postdoc Appreciation Week: Postoctober Fest during October 2022. In recognition of your many contributions to the university community, several organizations from around campus have planned a series of in-person and virtual activities and opportunities in your honor. Please join us for National Postdoctoral Scholar Appreciation Week at UCLA! View the schedule of events here.
