Additional Campus Resources for Postdocs

Duke has many resources for postdoctoral fellows. Here is a partial list of offices and programs, including their website links, which may be helpful. Please send other suggestions to kneal@duke.edu

  • Office of Postdoctoral Services. This is the central resource for Duke postdoctoral appointees from both Campus and School of Medicine departments, and includes information on professional development and careers; health and other benefits; transportation; and housing. It includes a section for international postdocs.
  • Graduate and Professional Student Council. This is the umbrella student government organization for Duke's nine graduate and professional schools. We encourage you to review the many different student groups affiliated with the GPSC.
  • International House, Graduate & Professional Students. The "IHouse" website has a lot of helpful information for postdocs and families from outside the U.S. The actual house, located at 300 Alexander Ave., Durham, NC 27705, often serves as a gathering place for international students.
  • NearDuke.com is a helpful resource for off-campus housing that may be accessed only by Duke affiliates. Options range from renting a room, apartment, or house, to sharing space with others.
  • Counseling & Psychological Services (CAPS). Juggling life, work, research, teaching, and studies can be stressful. CAPS offers services to help postdocs manage their stress, from wellness programs to counseling.
  • Duke Recreation & Physical Education helps students manage stress through exercise, whether in one of Duke's gyms or pools, or through intramural and other sports clubs.
  • Office for Institutional Equity. Duke values diversity and inclusion. OIE helps ensure learners at all levels leverage the power of diversity, handle conflicts effectively, and uphold university regulations related to equal opportunity, harassment, and discrimination.
