MIT 68 Biology Postdocs Logo

The Building 68 Postdoctoral Association (B68-PDA) consists of postdoctoral scholars working to build and maintain a supportive community among fellow postdocs in the MIT Department of Biology. Founded in 2015 and funded by the department, the mission of the B68-PDA is to:

  • Foster the Building 68 postdoc community,
  • Provide a forum for discussion of postdoc concerns,
  • Educate postdocs about topics relevant to their current and future positions,
  • Present opportunities for career development,
  • Encourage peer support and mentoring, and
  • Enhance scientific exchange


We host a number of monthly events and other initiatives (see below). Email us and follow us on Twitter to find out more or to get involved.
