National Postdoctoral Assocation Membership

NPA Affiliate Member Benefits:

Just a few of the benefits you receive with an NPA Affiliate Membership:

  • Subscriptions:  With the two NPA publications NPA E-Alerts, a periodic e-mail news announcements, and the POSTDOCket, the NPA’s official quarterly newsletter, you can stay informed on current postdoc issues.
  • Access to Members-Only Content: Your NPA membership gives you access to members-only web content such as the Institutional Postdoctoral Policies Database, The Postdoctoral Association (PDA) Toolkit, and the International Postdoc Survival Guide.
  • Professional & Leadership Development:  Not only is the NPA a valuable resource on postdoctoral issues, it is also a resource for professional and leadership development. The NPA provides these resources in the members-only content area and hard copies can be sent to you upon request. We also have opportunities to further develop your professional and leadership skills by serving on any of our eight membership committees or running for a seat on the executive board.
