Campus Resources

Here is a list of campus resources useful for postdocs:

Personal and professional development

  • Human Resources postdoc specialists: the HR department has Postdoc Specialists, both for administrative matters (concerning your appointment) as well as for all matters regarding relocation, transition, and adjustments to the United States and Caltech. Contact them (even before you arrive at Caltech) and make sure you take advantage of this service!
  • HR WorkLife Services
  • Staff and Faculty Consultation Center: provides free-of-charge assessment, problem-solving, counselling, and/or referral services to Caltech employees and their families. 
  • Caltech classes: postdocs are eligible to attend any course taught at Caltech for free! If you think you would benefit by learning another area of science, or that an extra language would be valuable for your career see what's available at the office of the registrar (click on "course schedule"). To formally register for a course you must first visit the office of the registrar to get a form and take this to the course instructor to be signed then take this to the Dean of Students and to the Bursar for signatures and return it to the office of the registrar.
