New report offers glimpse at postdoctoral fellows at UBC

UBC’s Postdoctoral Fellows Office (PDFO), in collaboration with the UBC Postdoctoral Association, have released a report and recommendations on how to improve the experience of postdocs at UBC. 

The report is based on the findings of a survey conducted in 2022 on postdoctoral fellows at UBC. With more than 1,300 postdocs across 120 different units on campus, this survey offers a birds-eye view of the landscape at the UBC Vancouver campus (UBC-V).  

Postdoctoral fellows are integral to the research engine at UBC but can face challenges and difficulties in staying at the University and in the Lower Mainland. This is partially due to the high cost of living in the Lower Mainland in general, and in comparison to postdoc stipends.

To learn more about the report and the recommendations for postdocs, visit the PDFO website.
