CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) and UBC’s response: please review the general information and FAQs and Postdoc-specific information.

Postdoc Profiles

UBC is home to over 1000 postdoctoral fellows spanning over 90 departments and 10 hospitals and affiliated sites. Please note the list below is not a comprehensive list of all postdoctoral fellows at UBC.

In order to boost the visibility of UBC’s postdoctoral fellows, we invite postdocs to create a profile sharing information about your research expertise and current work at UBC. These profiles can be great opportunities to make connections with researchers in related fields, as well as to share research with a broader audience.

If you are a UBC Postdoctoral Fellow and wish to create a postdoc profile, please visit the Graduate & Postdoctoral Studies Faculty and Staff Portal to create your profile.

Please contact us if you have any questions about a postdoc profile.
