Welcome to the CoS Research Faculty Advisory Council (RFAC) Webpage

Welcome to all Research Scientists and Postdoctoral Fellows (collectively, Research Faculty) in the Georgia Tech  College of Sciences!
We are postdocs and research scientists representatives from each of the six schools in the CoS. We envision an inclusive community where all research faculty members are empowered, valued, recognized and supported in their current and future endeavors. 

Our Mission

  • Advocate for the individual and collective rights, concerns, and well-being of research faculty and postdoctoral fellows (‘research faculty’);
  • Facilitate transparency and provide resources regarding governance, policies, and practices that affects research faculty; and
  • Support and strengthen our community of research faculty members.
