Who we are

FASPDA is a community for the postdocs of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences at Harvard University. The organization, which is run by postdocs in a democratic setting, works closely together with the FAS Office of Postdoctoral Affairs to enrich the social and professional lives of postdocs across the Harvard Cambridge campus.


The mission of the FASPDA is to create an environment where postdocs can voice their opinions and concerns and enhance their research experience by preparing them for the next step.


FASPDA envisions a strong community of postdocs by creating awareness about various career options, organizing networking events, creating a healthy work-life balance by organizing fun activities and being a part of the larger Boston Postdoc Community and the National Postdoc Association.
