    The UVM Postdoctoral Association is a volunteer group of postdoc scholars working to improve the training and experience of postdocs at the University of Vermont

Elevating the UVM postdoctoral experience

We promote a culture reflecting the University of Vermont Common Ground and six core competencies identified by the National Postdoctoral Association to facilitate professional development, broaden the training experience, and foster a vibrant, open, and collaborative community for all Postdoctoral Scholars at UVM.

Association Goals:

  1. Be a postdoc advocate with the administration of UVM and promote adoption of competitive salary and benefits in line with national guidelines.
  2. Build a strong and well-defined postdoc community through professional and social networking.
  3. Provide diverse professional/career dvelopment opportunities for postdocs.
  4. Foster interaction between UVM PDA and local professional and academic institutes, societies, and organizations.
