The Florida State University Postdoctoral Association (FSU PDA) was founded in August 2012 by postdoctoral researchers, with a shared vision to bring together postdocs across disciplines while improving the postdoctoral environment and training experience at FSU. Working with postdoctoral fellows, faculty members, and the administration, the PDA helped pave the way for the establishment of the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs (OPDA). Today, we have postdoctoral representatives from 8 departments who volunteer their time to help coordinate events, workshops, and relay information to their home departments all in the interest of making the postdoctoral experience at FSU productive and enjoyable.
