Overview and Mission
The Postdoc Association at University of Virginia was re-established in January 2019, with the goal of fostering a thriving postdoc community and enhancing the postdoctoral experience across Grounds. The founding board members voted on a non-hierarchical leadership structure, and created three committees to serve the primary needs of the postdoc members - Community Building committee, Career Development committee and Resource Development committee. In Summer of 2020, the Association formed the fourth committee 'Diversity & Community Outreach'. The Postdoc Association collaborates with the Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Affairs to develop and support its goals and initiatives. The Association will recruit new board members annually to embrace new ideas and sustain efforts. Interested Postdocs can join the committees at any time to plan initiatives, and join the board during the annual cycle.
