EAS Postdoctoral Scholars

G. Ravichandran

Dear EAS Postdoctoral Scholars,

Welcome to Caltech and the Division of Engineering and Applied Science (EAS). We have created this information page to help you connect with people and resources that can enrich your research and educational experiences at Caltech. I encourage you to stop by the EAS Division Office in the Gates-Thomas Building to meet our Postdoctoral Scholar Specialist, Maria Cervantes, who is a valuable resource for you. I also hope that you participate in the many events and lectures across campus including many organized by the Caltech Postdoctoral Association and the Caltech Diversity Center.

I still fondly remember my time as a Caltech postdoctoral scholar in GALCIT, which had a transformative effect on my career and life. It was a wonderful opportunity for me to broaden my research interests, and connect with people from various disciplines across the campus. It was also a time to enjoy all that Caltech had to offer including outstanding lectures and cultural events, and stimulating discussions over lunches at the Athenaeum.

Wishing you much success in all of your research and career endeavors,

Guruswami (Ravi) Ravichandran
Otis Booth Leadership Chair, Division of Engineering and Applied Science
John E. Goode, Jr., Professor of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering
