Our community will promote the continuous scholarship amongst our members, thereby contributing to the development and expansion of our collective disciplines. We seek to provide essential resources and professional development opportunities for self-identifying Black/African American postdoctoral trainees. Therefore, our mission is to provide Black postdoctoral trainees with a safe community to network and maximize their scholarship within their community as well as providing a platform for voicing and advocating issues that pertain to academia and the greater society.

We welcome and encourage all self-identifying black UAB postdocs to join us!
