PostDoctoral Researchers

The UC Irvine Post-Doctoral Association (PDA) is committed to building a vibrant postdoctoral community at UC Irvine. Its purpose is to enhance the professional development and experience of the university's nearly 400 postdoctoral researchers.

Quarterly workshops and seminars include such topics as:

  • Writing a cover letter and CV
  • Interviewing with confidence
  • Writing grants and publishing your work
  • Dealing with stress

The PDA also hosts a variety of social events for postdocs to get together, share knowledge and enhance their experiences outside the lab.
