Wayne State University Postdoctoral Association
As an association run by postdocs for postdocs, the WSU-PDA's mission is to promote the professional development and social well-being of the postdoctoral community at Wayne State University. We aim to:
- Optimize the professional development of postdoctoral scholars at Wayne State University in order to facilitate their successful transition to a professional career
- Promote social interactions between its members by creating a forum for social gathering and discussion of issues related to the postdoctoral experience at WSU.
- Recognize outstanding postdoctoral scholars at WSU, highlight the impact of postdoctoral research within WSU and connect WSU postdoctoral scholars to regional and national postdoctoral organizations.
- Organize community outreach efforts by the postdoctoral scholars of WSU.
The WSU-PDA is run by a steering committee composed of a dedicated team of postdocs from various departments across the WSU campus. In addition to the steering committee, several standing committees have been set up to effectively carry out the mission of the WSU-PDA. These include the Professional Development, Advocacy, Media and Networking, Events, and Fundraising and Publications committees.
Please read the WSU-PDA's bylaws for further information.
We are always looking for postdocs who would like to get involved. If interested, please contact Nadia Saadat email@example.com or Chitra Thakur firstname.lastname@example.org.
