Welcome to Scripps Oceanography

For new or prospective Postdoctoral Scholars, we tried to put a short guide together to help you navigate your initial days as Scripps more efficiently. Here, you will find what we thought was most important, but also encourage you to explore the University of California San Diego (UCSD) Office of Postdoctoral Scholar Affairs website, which provides more extensive information on various aspects of your appointment. 

The Office of Postdoctoral and Scholar Affairs (OPSA) is the official UC San Diego administrative office responsible for supervising postdoctoral scholar appointments and benefits. In addition, they offer extensive career development and health welfare programming. Upon beginning a postdoc at UC San Diego, you will need to attend one of the monthly New Postdoc Orientations, in which they will guide you through your benefits package.
