New York Academy of Sciences Membership

A free one-year membership to the New York Academy of Sciences Science Alliance Program (NYAS) is offered to all incoming postdoctoral researchers. This membership is sponsored and facilitated by the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs.

NYAS provides career-development programs, scientific seminars, career fairs, and workshops to science trainees in the New York City area with the goal of increasing members’ competitiveness in today’s job market.

On a quarterly basis, the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs forwards the names and email addresses of incoming fellows to NYAS and submits membership dues. NYAS contacts individual postdocs directly to complete the membership enrollment process. Memberships may be renewed by postdoctoral researchers after the first year at a cost of $35 per year.
