UP - UT Health San Antonio Postdoc Association

UT Health San Antonio Postdoctoral Association (UP)

UT Health San Antonio Postdoctoral Association (UP) is a volunteer organization dedicated to addressing the needs and concerns of all UT Health San Antonio postdocs. Our vision is to foster success among postdoctoral scholars today that will enhance their professional endeavors tomorrow. Our mission is to enhance, support and promote postdoctoral training at the University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio and help to prepare postdoctoral scholars for successful careers. UP serves postdoctoral scholars in all disciplines, schools, and colleges across the University. Our hope is to foster a sense of community, provide resources for career and personal development, and provide a framework for representation on campus and in the local community for postdoctoral scholars from all departments of the University.

We are here …

  • To build effective career management skills and develop the professional skills postdoctoral scholars need both in and outside of lab
  • To organize events and seminars that enriches the scientific experience of postdocs and encourages social interaction with the community.
  • To collaborate with other university organizations and services to address concerns that are unique to the postdoctoral scholar population
  • To advocate for postdoctoral scholars at UT Health San Antonio and educate them regarding university policy and postdoctoral rights
