Our Mission: The HMS/HSDM Office for Postdoctoral Fellows works to enhance the development and experience of the postdoctoral community. Through a combination of administrative initiatives and educational activities, the HMS/HSDM Office for Postdoctoral Fellows actively assists postdoctoral fellows in obtaining the skills necessary to pursue both academic and non-traditional careers in science and beyond. By supplementing the training received in the laboratory with career development guidance and ancillary research skills instruction, the office seeks to maintain the institutional reputation of recruiting and training the best biomedical researchers and scientific leaders of tomorrow.

To help meet the institutional challenges faced by black postdoctoral scholars at HMS, and throughout the HMS affiliated hospitals, a group of postdocs established the Harvard Medical School Black Postdoctoral Association (HBPA) on March 6, 2020.
This organization is established to promote a sense of connectedness throughout the HMS black research community, while providing a space for the exchange of information and opportunities that will enhance the social wellbeing, research advancement, and professional development of its members. This platform serves to get to know each other, discuss challenges, uplift morale, network, and plan university-wide events.
