Mailing Lists + Social Media

MIT Postdoc listserv

 An MIT postdoc Listserv keeps you updated on postdoc issues, alerts you to funding opportunities, and informs you of social events, seminars, and workshops. If you would like to receive periodic emails, please sign up using the form here*. This listserv is for the MIT community (postdocs and other research scholars, staff, and faculty) ONLY.  An MIT email address is required.

*If you still do not receive our weekly newsletters after signing up, please contact MIT’s Office of the Vice President for Research here.


Postdoc Forum

Additionally, one can subscribe to the postdoc-forum mailing list. This mailing list includes announcements of job openings, apartments for rent, discipline-specific seminars, etc. Go to the postdoc forum mailing list page. Fill out your e-mail address, choose a password and a confirmation request will be sent to you shortly. Next, sending an e-mail to will result in being forwarded to the subscribers of the mailing list.

Social media groups

Our social media groups are for current and former MIT postdocs only (and friends of postdocs who joined before September 2018).
To join our social media groups, please send a join request on the social media platform(s) and then fill out this form:

Join PDA’s social media groups

Please be patient: your MIT affiliation will be verified manually. Since we receive a high volume of requests every month, and we are just postdocs volunteering our time after work, we cannot guarantee that you will be added to our groups quickly. You can join our team to speed up the process 🙂

*Please send an email to if you are still not added to our groups two weeks after submitting this form.
