The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs

Two researchers at work in the lab.

The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs supports postdoctoral researchers in all aspects of their training and development toward independent careers. We collaborate with JHU-JHMI organizations, departments, faculty, and staff to enhance the research, training, wellness, and professional development of postdocs and to support their transition to successful careers in academia, industry, government, and other sectors.

The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs is delighted to welcome Dr. Marquita Genies, M.D., M.P.H., inaugural Assistant Dean for Graduate Medical Education and Postdoctoral Affairs Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. Welcome Dr. Genies!
