2013-2014 Academic Year
The NC State University Postdoctoral Association (PDA) serves as the voice of postdocs across campus. A Steering Committee in 2008 wrote the bylaws and provided the vision for the PDA. The bylaws guides the mission, activities, and structure of the PDA. Following is information regarding the Postdoc Association officers, meetings and minutes for the 2012-2013 academic year:
2013-2014 PDA Officers:
The NC State University PDA promotes the building of community among postdoctoral scholars at North Carolina State University and serves as the voice for postdocs across campus. The PDA also works with and supports the endeavors of the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs, and both entities strive to create an environment where postdoctoral scholars have an enriching and rewarding experience during their tenure at the university. Postdocs are welcome to join the General Council if space if positions are available (see bylaws). Contact one of the officers to find out more about the PDA, to share concerns, or to get involved.

Meet the Triangle Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Group!
We are a group of (mostly) postdocs that are interested in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. The purposes of the group are to facilitate discussions and to foster collaborations among early career ecologists and evolutionary biologists from different Universities and institutions across the Triangle region.
The Triangle_EEB group hosts a listserv where postdocs with interest in Ecology and Evolution share job announcements, seminars of interest, and other news pertinent to Ecology and Evolution. In 2014, we will be launching our first sponsored events: 1) in Spring 2014, we will host an IdeaFest (modeled on working groups at NCEAS and Nescent), where postdocs brainstorm new projects within and across their fields; we will also plan an Ecology and Evolution Research Symposium for early career biologists in Fall 2014.
