UWPA

Who We Are

The University of Washington’s Postdoctoral Association – UWPA – is an organization run by postdoctoral researchers for postdoctoral researchers. It is served by an executive committee, elected by peers, who have generously donated their time and efforts to improve the state of postdoctoral affairs at the University of Washington. It relies on donations from the University as well as outside partners to run programming as well as to serve as an advocate for postdocs at the University.
