Did you know that you can join the National Postdoctoral Association for free? 

Because ASU is a Sustaining Member of the NPA, postdocs, faculty, and staff at ASU are eligible for free Affiliate memberships. As a member you have opportunities to network with individuals in the postdoc community and gain access to members-only resources, such as the NPA Institutional Policy Database and myPostdoc Monthly, a webinar offering support to postdocs.

Here's how you can join: 

  1. Go to and click "Join" in the upper right corner
  2. Select your member type: "Affiliate Postdoc" 
  3. Enter your ASU email address as your username, along with your first and last name
  4. Enter all the required information and any other information you wish to have in your profile
  5. Click “Submit.” The NPA will review your membership application and approve it within 10 days. You will then get a confirmation email when your application is approved. 

The 2021 National Postdoc Association Annual Conference will take place in Philadelphia on April 16-18.  Details are available here.
