The MU Office of Graduate Studies has paid for institutional membership with the National Postdoctoral Association (NPA). This means all of Mizzou’s postdocs are entitled to free affiliate (individual-level) membership to NPA. In doing this, we join a long list of other prestigious universities who are also members of NPA. Here’s a list of their individual member benefits:
To obtain your free membership, contact the Assistant Vice Provost for Graduate and Postdoctoral Affairs.
NPA membership is also open to faculty and administrators. For more information, contact Assistant Vice Provost for Graduate and Postdoctoral Affairs.
