Welcome to The MUSC Postdoctoral Association (PDA)
The MUSC PDA Serves Various Functions on Campus Including:
- Scholarly Learning: This includes inviting outside speakers, organizing workshops, continuing education and giving postdocs opportunities to present their work in local meetings.
- Networking Activities: This includes formal and informal meetings and gatherings of postdocs. In addition, this includes social activities both at the University and outside of the University. The PDA shall have a commitment to promoting networking opportunities both within the postdoc community as well between the postdoc community and faculty.
- Postdoc Advocacy: The PDA should be a source of information and a sounding board for complaints and concerns. The PDA is a place to pass those concerns on to the appropriate channels; however, the PDA does not, in and of itself, have authority to directly alter any policy except its own bylaws and governance. The PDA interacts with the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs in the College of Graduate Studies, as well as, faculty to address the concerns that are brought forward.
