Office of Postdoctoral Affairs

ECU’s Office of Postdoctoral Affairs (OPA) is here to help you acquire and expand the professional skills needed to reach your chosen career path. The OPA Director and Liaison meet monthly with the elected council of the ECU Postdoctoral Association to plan career and professional development programs and develop a sense of community among university scholars. Past ECU postdoctoral scholars have made breakthroughs in cancer research, diabetes management and women’s health. ECU scholars have advanced to positions in the academy (liberal arts colleges, R1 and R2 universities), the private sector (such as pharmaceutical companies) and the government. Our current postdoctoral scholars are tackling science’s greatest problems in internal medicine, the environment and emergency medical care. The university’s postdoctoral scholars span many departments at ECU, such as biology, coastal studies, microbiology, physiology, and kinesiology. Regardless of the field or ultimate career goals, the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs is here to improve, support and promote postdoctoral training and help prepare scholars for successful careers.
