This page contains a provisional set of instructions for hiring a postdoc at SMU.
In Academic Year 2022-2023, the university piloted a new process for hiring Postdoctoral Fellows that was overseen by the Moody School of Graduate and Advanced Studies. This new process re-framed postdoctoral hiring at SMU so that it resembles the faculty hiring process. This new process is driven by the hiring manager/PI in collaboration with the department and school administration. The Moody School’s Office of Postdoctoral Affairs offers oversight and guidance. If you have questions about this process, please contact email@example.com.
