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

*******As many of you know, the Director of the Office of Postdoctoral Programs, Barb Bond, will be retiring at the end of spring term. The OPA seeks input from the postdoc community regarding candidates who will fulfill the Director position in addition to other duties in the Graduate School. Candidates will be interviewing in the near future (9, 14, and 23 May) with time dedicated for discussion with OSU postdocs; individuals interested in contributing to these meetings are urged to contact Rebecca Hutchinson (rah@eecs.oregonstate.edu) for more information.***********
