What is the YPA?
Want to get involved!?
- Attend a Monthly Meeting - These occur every second Tuesday at 6p, are open to all postdocs and are a time for us to discuss what is going on in the YPA and listen to ideas from postdocs about new events and initiatives.
- Join a Committee - Each committee has a specific mission that you can find in our by-laws and two postdocs who act as coordinators for the subcommittee. If you join one committee you are welcome and encouraged to participate and help out with events for other committees as well.
- Take a Leadership Role - Due to the nature of being a postdoc, the coordinator and co-chair positions experience a good amount of turnover, and serving in one of these positions is a great way to help the postdoc community and looks great on your resume.
- Have fun - Participating in the YPA is a lot of fun, and is a great way to meet new people and develop organizational and leadership skills.
