Mission Statement

The UIPDA acts as a representative on behalf of all University of Iowa Postdoctoral Scholars and Fellows. We are a group for Postdocs, by Postdocs.

Our goals are to:

  • Build a University-wide community of Postdocs by promoting social and professional networking
  • Provide support for research training and professional development
  • Advocate for constructive changes in the research environment and in policies that affect the lives of Postdocs and their dependents
  • Act as a liaison between University Postdocs and University entities that interact with or impact the postdoctoral community
