The University of Iowa Postdoctoral Association (UIPDA) invites the approximately 350 postdoctoral scholars and fellows on campus to attend one or more of the events planned for Postdoc Appreciation Week, Sept. 17 to 21. See the schedule of events below.
The UIPDA was formed in 2011 to represent the UI postdoctoral community and advocate for constructive changes in the policies that affect the lives of postdocs and their dependents. In addition, the UIPDA sponsors various events to facilitate the social integration and career development of all UI postdocs.
