Postdoctoral Scholars at Tufts University
Welcome to the Tufts University website for postdoctoral scholars! Tufts is a vibrant academic community with more than 200 postdocs on its Boston, Medford and Grafton campuses. We view these scholars as vital to our research and educational community and we recognize that postdocs contribute greatly to the success of Tufts. The administration is strongly committed to enriching trainees' preparation as researchers within the university setting as well as in their future career paths. This website has been designed to offer a wide range of useful information on policies, procedures and available resources that will enhance your postdoctoral experience at Tufts. We wish you much success during your time here and encourage you to experience all that Tufts has to offer!
The mission of the Postdoctoral program at Tufts University is to provide an environment in which Postdoctoral Scholars can broaden their research abilities and equip themselves with the skills necessary for a successful career in their chosen field. Postdoctoral Scholars at Tufts are obligated to carry out a research program to the best of their ability under the guidance of a research advisor.
Tufts University’s website contains general information about the university’s schools, programs, policies and activities. Information about policies that apply to postdocs can be found in:
- The Postdoc Handbook which provides policies and guidance that apply exclusively to Postdoctoral Scholars.
- Many of the policies in the Employee Handbook also apply to Postdoctoral Scholars.
Postdoctoral Scholars may also be subject to additional policies that are specific for their host Research Advisors, Departments and Schools.
The policies and guidance in this handbook may be changed at any time and this handbook does not create a contract between the University and any Postdoctoral Scholar.
