UBC is home to over 850 postdocs spanning over 90 units and 10 hospitals and affiliated sites. As valued members of the UBC community, postdocs make significant contributions to their chosen field, and in doing so raise the profiles of both themselves and the UBC community. In 2017, the Postdoctoral Fellows Office (PDFO) launched Postdoc Profiles in order to promote the world-class research being conducted by postdocs and their supervisors.
Supervisors/PIs are encouraged to invite their postdocs to complete a profile to share information about their research expertise and the current work they are conducting at UBC, at https://faculty-staff.grad.ubc.ca/user Once complete, postdoc profiles will be linked to the supervisor profile of their Supervisor/PI, can be displayed on the PDFO website, and the expertise search can be used to help external entities – such as media, research collaborators, or prospective employers - identify experts at UBC.
Postdoctoral Fellows can contact the PDFO firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about creating a postdoc profile.
