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
