National Postdoctoral Association

The National Postdoctoral Association (NPA) is a member-driven, 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that provides a unique, national voice for postdoctoral scholars. Since 2003, we have taken on the ambitious agenda to enhance the quality of the postdoctoral experience in the United States. We have assumed a leadership role in addressing the many issues confronting the postdoctoral community that are national in scope and requiring action beyond the local level.

Headquartered in Washington, D.C., the NPA meets its agenda through advocacy, resource development and community-building.

The NPA believes that:

– Postdocs make invaluable contributions to the research enterprise.
– Postdocs share personal responsibility for the progression and outcomes of their careers.
– Inequities within the postdoctoral community should be rectified to the maximum extent practicable, while recognizing the unique needs of each stakeholder.
– The U.S. research community should make every effort to attract the best and the brightest men and women from all groups, including international scholars, underrepresented minorities, and persons with disabilities.
