Office of Postdoctoral Affairs Postdoc Community

The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs works with both the Drexel Postdoctoral Association and the National Postdoctoral Association to ensure that our postdocs have access to a complete network and community.

Sustaining Member of the National Postdoctoral Association


Drexel University is a Sustaining Member of the National Postdoctoral Association (NPA). Therefore, our postdocs receive free Affiliate Membership.

To learn more about NPA free resources, events and opportunities, please visit the National Postdoctoral Association’s website.


The Drexel Postdoctoral Association (DPA) aims to support postdocs during their journey at Drexel in a professional and social capacity. The DPA works with the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs to build stronger relations and advocate for postdocs in order to enact constructive changes and improve the training experience by engaging with Drexel administration and faculty.

Through the DPA, you can:

  • Connect with peers
