Office of Postdoctoral Affairs

The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs (OPA) is an office within the University of Washington Graduate School’s Core Programs and staffed by University Faculty and Staff.

The UWPA differs from the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs (OPA) as it is a group run solely by current postdocs who have generously donated their time to help advocate for postdoc’s rights on-campus, as well as to contribute to the overall postdoc experience here at the University of Washington.

Both groups share similar goals in promoting awareness to this important yet “invisible” research workforce as well as to provide support to ensure each postdoc is able to experience the best training possible at UW.
