The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs (OPA) aims to enhance the experience of all postdoctoral scholars at Stony Brook by providing support, mentoring and advocacy for the postdoctoral community. Stony Brook University recognizes the important contributions postdocs make to the research community and we expect your time here at SBU to be personally satisfying and professionally rewarding. Postdocs are encouraged to broaden their professional and career development by participating in a variety of workshops, courses, and other opportunities during their time here. Watch the OPA Web site and make sure you are on the OPA mailing list to receive information about upcoming opportunities and programs.
Established in 2010, OPA was reorganized in 2013 to become part of the Office for the Integration of Research, Education, and Professional Development (IREP). As part of the IREP Office, OPA plays an important role in integrating postdocs and their continuing professional development into the broader university curriculum.
