• Office of Postdoctoral Affairs (OPA)


    An institutional resource to address the needs and enhance the training environment for postdoctoral research fellows and mentors


    Welcome to the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs! This office serves postdoctoral research fellows, essential members of the multidisciplinary investigative teams at the UT Health Science Center - San Antonio. Although the research knowledge and skills acquired by newly-minted scientists significantly contribute to the overall success of our research programs, the training of early career investigators must also insure that they:

    • obtain critical career skills
    • build an individual record of accomplishment
    • define and establish networks

    The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs supports trainee professional development and is integral in maintaining the vitality of our postdoctoral research training environment.

    The OPA is housed within the Office of the Vice-President for Research and is located on the main campus. We provide resources to trainees and mentors from throughout the Health Science Center. Please explore the OPA and let us know of your needs.
