The National Postdoctoral Association (NPA) is holding elections this fall to bring four committed and energetic individuals to the NPA Board of Directors for three-year terms. We are seeking candidates representing a broad spectrum of research disciplines, institutional settings, geographic regions, demographic groups, and professional experiences. Expertise in fundraising, leadership, and policy advocacy are particularly appealing. Service on the Board is an excellent opportunity to refine your skills and share your vision with a dynamic group.
Service on the Board is not just for postdocs. The NPA also seeks individuals with backgrounds in administration, nonprofit governance, organizational development, and strategic partnerships.
