The Graduate School sponsors the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs, which is here to help you navigate life at the UW as a postdoctoral fellow.
Office Hours and Appointments
To enrich the postdoc mentoring experience at UW, OPA offers Office Hours for Postdocs. We have a designated faculty member to provide one-on-one mentoring to all UW postdocs.
Senior Faculty Advisor Dr. Bill Mahoney is available for office hours weekly noon–2:00 p.m. on Wednesdays. Appointments are also sometimes available at other times.
Contact Bill at firstname.lastname@example.org for all appointment requests.
What to Expect
During the one-on-one mentoring session, your advisor will give advice and guidance on various issues critical to postdoctoral experience, including but not limited to:
- development of Individual Development Plans (IDPs)
- exploration of diverse career options
- identification of mentors
- grant-writing advice
- strategize conversations with your mentors
Dr. Mahoney is looking forward to sharing his experience with you and helping to guide you throughout your fellowship towards an independent career.
