According to The Scientist's survey, Indiana University School of Medicine has been nationally ranked in the Top 40 Best Places to Work for Postdocs for three consecutive years (2007, 2008, 2009). Notable strengths of the IUSM experience include the quality of family and personal life as well as the benefits.
Since IUSM is a sustaining member of the National Postdoctoral Association, all IUSM postdocs are eligible to register as affiliate members. As an affiliate member, you will receive NPA e-alerts and the POSTDOCket, the quarterly newsletter. You also have access to members-only online resources and discounts to attend the annual meeting and other programs. Sign up at http://www.nationalpostdoc.org/?page=affiliate_members.
In addition, the OPA works closely with the newly formed IUSM Postdoctoral Association to address the needs and concerns of IUSM Postdocs. This includes providing a Postdoc Buddy program specifically to help new and incoming postdocs in adjusting to a new city and job by matching them with existing postdocs at IUSM as well as offering professional and social events.
