COS Resources for Graduate Students and Postdoctoral Scholars

The College of Science (COS) recognizes that in addition to pursuing their own research and scholarly activities, graduate assistants (GAs) and postdoctoral scholars play critical roles in COS as researchers and instructors in labs and classrooms. You are among the hardest-working individuals on this campus - in fact the university cannot run without you. The COS Graduate Student and Postdoctoral Scholars Re-entry Committee aims to help you navigate re-entry concerns, working conditions, and assignments during the university’s re-entry process.

We have created this document with resources and guidance for COS Graduate Students and Postdoctoral Scholars.
