CAPS/ACSP is proud to announce a new international partnership with the National Postdoctoral Association (NPA) in the United States.

CAPS/ACSP works to improve the lives, training, and work experience of all Canadian postdocs through advocacy, the maintenance of a strong postdoc community, and by providing information, resources, and support for postdocs working in Canada and Canadian postdocs abroad.  The NPA strives to improve the postdoctoral experience by supporting enhanced research training and a culture of enhanced professional growth to benefit scholarship and innovation.

As part of this partnership, CAPS/ACSP and the NPA will promote each other’s events, initiatives, and resources to help create a greater sense of community among postdocs and draw attention to the common challenges faced by postdocs working in Canada and the United States. Working together, we hope to provide a unified voice for postdoctoral scholars across North America.
