The Resource Development Committee develops tools and resources for the postdoctoral community including content and publications on the NPA website and POSTDOCket.
Are you interested in resources for international postdocs and efforts towards diversity? Do you want to gain experience in writing and editing or website development? Are you interested in communicating with the membership of the NPA about important policies, articles and initiatives? The Resource Development Committee interfaces with many of the NPA’s committees, goals, and projects as it provides relevant information and resources to the postdoc population. This committee can provide you with many chances to be effective in postdoc affairs while adding to your own skill set.
