Welcome to the PDAC homepage!

PDAC is a newly minted union, ran by postdocs for postdocs

PDAC is your Association or Union which consists of postdoctoral members who join together to advance common interests such as salaries, benefits, schedules, employment terms and conditions, while connecting postdocs to professional development opportunities.

Join PDAC in building a strong community, in which postdocs are provided:

  1. Fair and reasonable compensation and benefits for their work

  2. Effective career and professional development opportunities

  3. A supportive social network

  4. A protection from arbitrary decisions

  5. Rights and privileges similar to those provided to graduate students and faculty members
