Our Mission

The mission of the Postdoc Academy is to create a comprehensive and flexible professional development program targeting the needs of postdocs. Our goal is to help postdocs develop the transferable skills that will enable their success in a diverse set of careers.

Our Team

The Postdoc Academy is developed by a team at Boston University, Michigan State University, University of Wisconsin-Madison, and Northwestern University. In addition to the strengths that each team member brings to the project, our institutions combined represent four high-quality research institutions with over 3,000 postdocs combined.

Our Funders and Partners

The Postdoc Academy is supported by NIGMS of the National Institutes of Health under award number R25GM121257. The content is solely the responsibility of the Postdoc Academy team and does not necessarily represent the official views of the National Institutes of Health.

We are partnered with organizations, such as the National Research Mentor Network (NRMN) and the National Postdoctoral Association (NPA). Partnering with national organizations, professional societies, and research networks is critical to ensure the Postdoc Academy is accessible to a diverse postdoc population nationwide.

The Postdoc Academy collaborates with Curricu.me on the creation of our EdX platform. Curricu.me has been doing Open EdX installations and customizations since 2014. They offer deployment, maintenance, training and consulting services for customers large and small.
