Position Posting Tools

The Academic Trainee Office does not oversee pre-appointment practices for trainees in the Semel Institute. Although there are no campus requirements, the recruitment and job posting processes should follow the policies required by department, division, or school.

External Posting Resources

The most efficient way to reach as many UCLA graduate students and postdocs as possible is by posting your postdoc opportunity on the Handshake platform. By creating an account and posting your postdoc opportunity, it will be visible and searchable to all graduate students and postdocs at UCLA, and you can set qualifications to make sure you reach the right audience. You can even automatically send your posting to other schools in the Handshake network.

If you have any questions about getting your post on Handshake, please contact dblancha@career.ucla.edu.
