Allan Johnston's men ensured their Scottish Premiership status on the final day of the season with a 1-0 victory at Hibernian courtesy of Kris Boyd's winner.
Johnston is now shaping his squad for the new campaign and hopes to keep a number of out-of-contract stars, including Boyd.
He is also on the search for a new assistant following Sandy Clark's departure.
Johnston said in the Daily Record: "We're still talking to Kris Boyd, Alexei Eremenko, Sammy Clingan, Jeroen Tesselaar and James Fowler.
"I have spoken to a couple of people regarding the assistant manager's job now Sandy Clark has left the club.
"We had a good partnership at Queen of the South and Kilmarnock but this is an opportunity to freshen things up."
