Reference for new hires into the Postdoc programs at Tufts. Admission, recruitment, and hiring information can be found on each of the specific programs’ websites.
Postdoctoral Scholars carry out a research program under the guidance of a research advisor, who is generally a Tufts faculty member. The program aims to equip Postdoctoral Scholars with the skills necessary to become independent researchers in their respective areas of specialization. The research training experience at Tufts typically lasts up to five years, or until completion of six years of post-doctoral research in total. The Program is intended as a training program of finite duration, as opposed to a permanent position, that will enable Postdoctoral Scholars to become independent researchers.Postdocs are offered Medical benefits through Aetna and Dental benefits through Delta Dental. See our Knowledge Articles Post Doc Dental Coverage and Post Doc Medical for more information about those benefits.
Questions pertaining to other benefits (403b, FSA, Commuter) should be directed to Tufts Support Services. Upon arrival to campus, postdocs will be invited to attend New Employee Orientation, which occurs every other week (alternating campuses) from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Orientation topics include an introduction to key departments and resources at Tufts and some information about each physical campus. The orientation session also includes time for individual consultations with representatives from Tufts Support Services, Human Resources Benefits, and Tufts Technology Services. Postdocs who work in a lab or clinical setting will need to attend additional Lab Safety Training. For more information about orientation sessions, please contact Lauren Hubbard (Medford and Boston campus) or Patty Boucher (Grafton campus). More information about postdoc programs at Tufts, including pay rates, can be found on the Office of the Provost website or by contacting Daniel G. Jay, Ph.D. at (617) 636-6714 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
