About the APF

We are the Association of Postdoctoral Fellows of McGill University, Montreal, Canada. We represent the 650+ current post-docs at McGill and the over 1000+ post-docs that pass through McGill each year

We aim to address the issues that postdocs face at McGill, as well as nationally and internationally. Whilst all postdocs are part of the PGSS, we face some fundamentally different challenges – definition of our status, taxation, and career development, to name but a few. Our aim is to keep McGill postdocs informed of relevant information, in addition to advocacy work and acting as a voice of PDFs within the McGill community, and at large. You can learn more about APF organization and basis by reading our constitution.

A postdoc position is a busy and critical stage of our career, and so the running of the APF needs to be spread amongst a number of people. We’re working to keep the website up to date, and make sure PDF representatives sit on designated committees within the university. There’s also plenty to be done in terms of events, sharing information and expertise, and career development opportunities. If you’d like to get involved – please contact an executive member! We also have an email address. We’d love to hear from you!
