postdoctoral advisory council

Postdoctoral Advisory Council

Chaired by the Director of the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs, Itzamarie Chevere-Torres, the Postdoctoral Advisory Council (PAC), is a small university-wide group of faculty, staff, and postdocs who has an interest in improving the culture, experience, and professional development for postdocs at the University.  The PAC works together to make formal recommendations for related policies that will be reviewed/approved by our Executive Steering Committee.
