The Berkeley Postdoctoral Association

The Berkeley Postdoctoral Association (BPA) is a volunteer organization of postdocs working to advocate for the postdoc and visiting scholar community at UC Berkeley.  Alongside the VSPA-affiliated organizations, we strive to provide a network of support and professional development for postdocs and visiting scholars through workshops, social events, seminars, and ensure we are doing our part to actively promote diversity, equity, and inclusion through our programming.

To this end, we currently have three programming committees:

  • Committee for Social Events

  • Committee for Diversity and Inclusion

  • Committee for Career Development
