The Postdoctoral Association (PDA) at UCLA aims to provide opportunities to build the postdoc community on the UCLA campus. Through collaboration between the PDA Executive Board, the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs in the Biomedical and Lifesciences, and the Graduate Division’s Postdoctoral Scholar Appointment and Services (PSAS) team, the PDA aims to: enhance UCLA postdocs’ sense of community and identity, foster communication between postdocs, faculty, and administration, contribute a postdoctoral perspective to campus issues, and facilitate opportunities for postdoc social engagement and community building.
