For Administrators

Department administrators are a crucial source of support for postdoctoral fellows at Northwestern University. They play an integral role in the appointment process, advise postdocs on policies and procedures, and serve as a vital line of communication with others in the department and beyond.

The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs is here to support administrators as they work with postdoctoral fellows. This section contains important information about policies and procedures around postdoctoral appointments at Northwestern.
