New Insights into the Postdoctoral Experience from a National Survey

Erin Heckler

 

In 2016, the University of Chicago Postdoctoral Association Survey Committee and Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Affairs disseminated a national postdoc survey.

NPA News and Committee Corner

 

The Committees of the Membership, along with the International and Diversity Officers, are at the core of the NPA. They work to develop events and resources that support the postdoctoral community, and their work would not be possible without volunteers. Volunteering with an NPA committee is a great way to gain professional experience at the national level, while giving back to the postdoctoral community. Here are some highlights of what committees and officers have been up to and how you can get involved.
