Formed in 1998, the Vanderbilt Postdoctoral Association (VPA) serves as a platform to bring together and support the Vanderbilt postdoctoral community.

All Vanderbilt-affliliated postdoctoral fellows and trainees (VU and VUMC) are welcome to participate in the VPA. The VPA is supported by The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs.

See News and Events for details on upcoming meetings and events. If you have agenda items for the monthly meeting or wish to serve as a member of a VPA committee, please email postdoc(at)

You are invited to visit our Resources page, which includes a number of curated Resource Letters and links to other helpful resources for postdocs. 

The best way to connect with the VPA and other postdocs is through the VPA Slack Channel:
