Postdoctoral Wellness Programs

The Office for Postdoctoral Affairs and Early Career Research offers weekly and monthly events focusing on various areas of wellness. Our current events are detailed below, but we are frequently expanding and adjusting our offerings to best meet postdoc needs.

If you have feedback about other events you’d like to see, please email Samantha Samel, Associate Director of Wellness and Special Projects, at [email protected]

Postdocs can schedule 1-on-1 wellness appointments to develop wellness goals or discuss resources that may be helpful in meeting specific wellness needs. Additionally, PIs or other faculty and staff members are also able to schedule individual appointments to discuss postdoctoral wellness needs. Please email [email protected] to schedule an individual wellness appointment.

Each month the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs organizes a wellness workshop or seminar focusing on an area of wellness such as physical, social, emotional, or intellectual wellness. Check out the OPA calendar to see what wellness event is planned for this month!

OPA coordinates weekly fitness events for Postdocs and Associate Research Scientists, including regular Zumba classes (Tuesdays at 6pm) and yoga classes (yoga is on a brief hiatus; stay tuned for updates). For the most part, these events are held virtually, though occasional in-person events are scheduled. Please see our calendar for more information.
