The Post Doctoral Division (PDD) within the Office for Research Career Development (ORCD) was created to provide postdocs with a more cohesive environment that will complement their academic training experience and help them prepare for career opportunities.
The Massachusetts General Postdoc Association (MGPA) was formed by postdoctoral researchers at Mass General to serve as a platform for interaction between postdoctoral researchers. It gives researchers a forum to interact outside the laboratory, and provides excellent leadership opportunities.
The MGPA organizes seminars on research science and career development, acts as a liaison between postdocs and Mass General administrators and provides opportunities for networking and socialization.
It also connects Mass General researchers with local and national postdoc associations.
