UCSF has a large (1,100+) Postdoc population. Due to the nature of the university and its many campus locations, connecting with people can be a struggle. For this, the PSA has set up several ways to connect and communicate:

PSA Monthly Meeting

Would you like to get more involved & help us to build a stronger community among UCSF postdocs? Join us for the Postdoctoral Scholars Association (PSA) monthly planning meeting the fourth Monday of every month at noon.

* ZOOM details will be shared by email a few days before each meeting.


Slack is a messaging app for teams. This can be used to communicate with Postdocs in specific buildings or across campuses, if you need something immediately, say a chemical etc. You can subscribe yourself with your email address:



Follow us on twitter @PostdocsUCSF for news and views on issues relevant to postdoc life at UCSF.


Follow us @postdocsucsf for the official 'gram of the UCSF Postdoctoral Scholars Association.


Check out our Facebook page for more informal connecting and communicating. Share your ideas for activities, look for housing, etc.
