Get involved!

The UBC Postdoctoral Association is looking for postdocs and research associates to volunteer as members of the Executive Team.

You would primarily serve as the association’s extension within your department/institute: help with the orientation of new postdocs, make sure postdocs in your department know they are represented by the PDA, and help spread the word regarding our events and social activities.

Executive Team members can also participate in our monthly executive meetings and help shape future PDA policies and activities.

All those willing to help are welcome! Executive Team members have come from the following departments, so if your department is not listed we would be particularly happy to have you:

  • Institute of Applied Mathematics
  • Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
