The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs at Thomas Jefferson University (TJU) officially opened on October 27, 2003 with the placement of Lisa Kozlowski, PhD, as the Associate Dean for Postdoctoral Affairs and Recruitment. The Board of Trustees at Thomas Jefferson identified the Jefferson Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences as the central location for this office.

These will include, but are not limited to, working with the TJU human resources department to implement salary and benefits guidelines, creating a database of postdoctoral fellows, establishing a web-based recruiting resource to identify postdoctoral positions available at TJU, coordinating career and professional development workshops, and being a central resource for TJU postdoctoral fellows as well as departmental administrators and PIs.
