The Fox Chase Postdoctoral Association, formed in 1998, consists of postdoctoral trainees and graduate students. Our role is to make the postdoctoral experience at Fox Chase as rewarding as possible, both inside and outside of the laboratory. Postdoctoral trainees at the Center do this through their daily contacts with each other, and many participate regularly in informal social and sporting activities.
In a more formal context, members of the association are involved in organizing the following events, with the aim of providing additional opportunities for postdocs to present their work, meet with visiting scientists and help with career choices.
- Career seminars
- Invited speakers
- Distinguished lecturer meetings

Support the Postdoctoral Research Program
Training postdoctoral candidates to become the next generation of scientists is central to Fox Chase Cancer Center’s tradition of leadership in cancer research. The Center provides a host of valuable resources to enrich professional and personal lives and fosters an environment conducive to strong collaboration across all disciplines - accounting for its consistent acclaim as one of the best places for postdocs to work by The Scientist magazine. As an alum of Fox Chase’s Postdoctoral Program, no one understands the importance of this experience better than you. Thank you for helping to enrich the experience for future trainees!
