Welcome to UAB! The Office of Postdoctoral Education (OPE) is your central hub for support and services throughout your postdoc appointment. As you start your time at UAB, there are a few logistical items to complete. These tasks can be found in the New Postdoc Checklist. We also encourage you to spend some time reading the Postdoc Policies and Procedures and the OPE Handbook. Finally, it’s important for all postdocs to understand the Postdoc Benefits in order to know what leave you’re entitled to, what student load deferment options you have, and other university benefits provided to postdocs.

If you have questions about the content included in these pages or would like to discuss them in greater detail. Please contact Joe Talty, Program Director of Operations jtalty@uab.edu
