OPA - Oregon State University Postdoctoral Association

Welcome to OPA!

The Oregon State University Postdoctoral Association (OPA) aims to provide a network (social and professional) for all OSU-affiliated postdocs and a framework for liaising with and advising the Director of the Office of Postdoctoral Programs (OPP) at OSU. For the purposes of this organization, an OSU postdoc is defined as anyone who is affiliated with OSU and holds a PhD or equivalent degree, but does not hold a professorial position. The OPA is an auxiliary enterprise of the OSU Graduate School

Please join us for our next event:
