Orientation for New UC Davis Postdocs
Welcome to UC Davis! Thank you for choosing us for this next step in your academic journey.
There are two very important orientation videos below, one to help you familiarize yourself to UC Davis and our postdoc services, and the other to help you understand your employee benefits as a postdoc.
Please watch our orientation video for an overview of our campus, how to get started in your position, and the services available to you. You can also download the slides from this video to follow along or access the hyperlinks mentioned.
Please be sure to also access the Postdoctoral Scholar Benefits Program video from UC Davis Human Resources to learn about your choices in employee benefits, such as health/dental/vision insurance. UC Davis Human Resources is the unit that manages benefits for our postdoctoral scholars. If you have questions about employee benefits, please email email@example.com.
Once you have arrived at UCD, please plan to attend our monthly in-person Meet & Greet events that connect incoming and continuing postdocs with resource staff and networking opportunities.
UC Davis is proud to be an institutional member of the National Postdoctoral Association!
