The University of Washington Postdoctoral Association (UWPA) is run by postdocs and for postdocs. The mission of the UWPA is to expand the experience of postdoctoral fellows from all backgrounds. To this end, we are dedicated to enhancing the inclusivity, welfare, and professional development of our community.

The UWPA is committed to all UW and Seattle-area postdocs. This includes our colleagues at Seattle Children’s and Fred Hutch. This also includes early-career researchers in postdoc-like positions who may have been hired under slightly different job titles.

UWPA newsletter

The UWPA writes a newsletter on a monthly basis to provide resources and information to postdocs. Sign up for the UWPA newsletter.
