The UW–Madison Postdoctoral Association (UWPA) is looking for volunteers to serve in the leadership council. The UWPA plans and sponsors events, programs, and activities that engage the campus postdoc community. Leadership elections took place in June for the Executive Council – the group with primary responsibility for running this postdoc-led association – however, we are still lacking two volunteers to serve as Secretary and Communications Director.
Term lengths and time commitments for each position can be flexible, but If possible we would ask for you to participate until the next council is elected on June 2021. The main commitment is participating in the monthly UWPA Council Meetings and handling some responsibilities specific to the position. See officer position descriptions here and visit the association’s website to learn more about what the UWPA does for campus postdocs.
New postdocs are welcome to volunteer! This is a great opportunity to enhance your leadership and teamwork skills in a collaborative environment and to learn more about postdoc resources on campus.
If you are interested in volunteering and serving the postdoc community at UW-Madison, please contact Hector Burgos (firstname.lastname@example.org).
