Complete Your Postdoc Profile, Win an iPod Nano!

As you may know, the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs (OPA) rolled out a new CHOP Trainee Profile System in April 2018.

This database allows CHOP to collect necessary data to support the development of institutional NIH National Research Service Award (NRSA) Training Grant applications. Postdoctoral Fellows are required to complete their profiles upon hire, and to update them annually as part of the annual review process.

All Postdocs that complete their postdoc profile in the new database on or before July 1, 2018, will be entered to win a raffle for a 7th Generation iPod Nano. Postdocs that have already updated their profiles are already eligible to win, and do not need to revisit the database.

You can update your trainee portal by visiting https://postdoc.research.chop.edu and following the directions below.

  1. Log in using your Active Directory Username and Password (the same credentials you use to access your E-mail account).
  2. On the main page, click on your name in the top right corner of the screen and select "Profile."
