The University of British Columbia (UBC) established the Postdoctoral Fellows Office (PDFO) within the Faculty of Graduate Studies in early 2010 to formally acknowledge the key role played by Postdoctoral Fellows (PDFs) in achieving the goal of increasing the quality and excellence of UBC’s research and scholarship.
PDFs are valued members of the UBC community and make an indispensable contribution to the research environment of the University. As researchers, they make significant contributions to their chosen field and in doing so raise the profile of themselves and UBC. As a member of a research group or as an individual researcher, they work under the general supervision of a faculty member and may assist with the supervision of graduate students.
