Thomas Jefferson University, founded in 1824, is a nationally ranked, doctoral research university and a pioneer in transdisciplinary, professional education. Over 170 faculty members and researchers in basic science, translational, and clinical departments have received over $200 million per year in extramural research funding, much of it from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and produced over 4,000 scholarly publications per year. Research areas are widespread across the biomedical sciences, including virology, neuroscience, structural biology, genomics, cancer biology, radiology, biochemistry, and orthopedic surgery.
Founded in 2003, the Jefferson Office of Postdoctoral Affairs (OPA) resides within the Jefferson College of Life Sciences, but supports over 100 postdoctoral fellows university-wide. Jefferson Postdoctoral Association (JPA) was formed and became a recognized university organization in 2004. Both entities support a vibrant postdoctoral fellow training environment and community. The OPA develops policies to enhance the postdoctoral training experience and provides career and professional development programming. The JPA holds open meetings, social hours, technical skills seminars and bi-annual parties. These activities foster a community among the postdoctoral fellows. The OPA and JPA work together on many activities, including the annual Postdoctoral Research Symposium.
