Florey Postdoctoral Association

The Florey Postdoctoral Association (FPA) unites the postdoctoral scientists of the Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health. The overall organisation of the FPA is managed by a dedicated Committee which is renewed annually.

The purpose of the FPA is to:

  • Provide opportunities to Florey postdoctoral scientists for professional, scientific, personal and career development.
  • Enhance communication between Florey postdoctoral scientists through social and professional networking events.
  • Inform Florey postdoctoral scientists of educational, employment and award opportunities
  • Promote contributions made by Florey postdoctoral scientists both within the Institute and externally.
  • Represent Florey postdoctoral scientists towards the Florey Executive and more broadly within the Institute.
