New Postdoc Orientation 6/27/17
Tue, June 27, 2017, 12:00 PM – 2:00 PM EDT
Please note that the information below pertains only to postdocs who are working in a QUAD department. Postdocs working in (and receiving pay from) one of our hospital affiliates should contact their department administrator for information regarding orientation and getting settled.
The HMS/HSDM Office for Postdoctoral Fellows organizes orientations every 6 weeks for new postdocs. The Postdoc orientation is an important opportunity for new postdocs to obtain the necessary resources they need for living and working in and around the HMS/HSDM community. Postdocs learn about the administrative systems at HMS/HSDM and Harvard, research offices and policies, and receive a broad overview and explanation of the many benefits of working at Harvard.
Federal policy requires you to sign up for benefits within 30 days of your start date. If you do not receive a Benefits Package at your home mailing address within two weeks of your start date, call the Benefits Office at 617/496-4001. If you are unable to attend orientation, you are strongly encouraged to watch the following video for a detailed overview of your benefits: The Benefits of Working at Harvard.
