Welcome to Jefferson Lab's Graduate Student and Post-Doc Association Wiki


The Graduate Student and Post-Doc Association (GSPDA) consists of Students and Post-Docs from the Jefferson Lab community.

It is led by a committee of volunteers who assist and engage in activities throughout the year.

JSA Initiative funds have been awarded again to this group which allow for a certain amount of lunch seminars.
