Ambassador Program

Ambassador Program

Moving to a new location and a new position can be stressful. The PDA would like to offer assistance with this transition through our Ambassador Program. Established in collaboration with the UC San Diego International Faculty & Scholar Office, the program places you in contact with a fellow postdoc “Ambassador.” You will exchange emails with your Ambassador to ask questions about life in San Diego, and they will share their experiences, including information about housing, transportation, and other topics. Complete the form below or contact: ambassadorprogram@ucsd.edu

In the meantime, check out our Postdoc Survival Guide which explains how to navigate university life in San Diego, including tips on career development, teaching, networking, information for postdocs with families, and more.

Note: This program is for postdocs who have already accepted a position at UC San Diego and is not to provide advice on how to get a postdoctal position. For prospective postdocs looking for a position, please visit the Office of Postdoctoral & Visiting Scholar Affairs.
