School Point of Contact (SPOC) and Guides

All schools and colleges have designated a school point of contact (SPOC) who is responsible for working with their faculty and staff on the appointment/reappointment process. This individual has been trained by OPA and should be your first point of contact. Once a school/college recruits and selects a postdoctoral appointee, it is the responsibility of the SPOC to work with you to complete the required documents and processes before forwarding the appointment request to the OPA.

Below is a list of SPOCs organized by school/college, along with specific guides for administrators and SPOCs. Additional policies and procedures, including approved postdoctoral appointee classifications and codes, can be found in the Appointment and Reappointment Guide for Faculty and Staff Administrators.
