Join the PDA

The purpose of the Ohio State Postdoctoral Association (PDA) is to address the needs and concerns of its members by:

  • Providing representation and liaison between its members and the administration of the Ohio State University
  • Promoting the academic and non-academic career goals of its members
  • Advocating for constructive changes in the research environment and in policies that affect the lives of postdocs and their families
  • Building a community of postdocs by promoting interaction between postdocs on academic, social, cultural and political issues


The PDA is run entirely by Ohio State postdocs. Join us at our monthly meetings: All meetings will be held on the third Thursday of the month.

You can stay connected with the PDA by liking our Facebook page, joining our LinkedIn group, or signing up for the PDA listserv.
