Postdoctoral Association

University of Pretoria Postdoctoral Association (UPPA)

The University of Pretoria Postdoctoral Association (UPPA) represents the interests of the postdoctoral community at UP, organises seminars and also hosts social events. Participation in UPPA activities is voluntary. Nonetheless, UPPA strongly encourages new postdoctoral fellows to join and  also register with UPPA’s google group, so as to keep postdocs updated about upcoming events, and to offer them an opportunity to voice pressing issues and submit your own queries.

A new committee is elected annually. The executive team for 2020 is:

Dr Ivruc Djeumen ( Secretary) - Email address [email protected]
