Postdoctoral Scholars/Visitors Services
Scholars/Visitors Services (PDS/VS) is located in the Office of
Human Resources and is responsible for all the administrative
matters concerning postdoctoral scholars and visitors.
The PDS/VS office works closely with the International Scholars Services
(ISS) and the six academic divisions at Caltech and JPL in
facilitating the appointment process and arrival of
all postdoctoral scholars and visitors.
The PDS/VS office utilizes Caltech's Oracle HRMS application
to track and generate all documents relating to postdoctoral
scholars and visitors. All postdoctoral scholars and visitors must register
with the PDS/VS office in order to activate their appointment
at Caltech. Information
regarding medical, dental and other benefits, if applicable,
is made available during the check-in orientation process.
Our goal is to
provide the necessary administrative support to postdocs and
visitors, serve as a liaison between postdocs and the
Institute, and finally, to serve as a resource during a
postdoc or visitor's transition to Caltech and Pasadena. We welcome you to
Caltech and Pasadena and look forward to meeting you.
