Postdoc Editors Association

The UF Office of Postdoctoral Affairs is pleased to announce the creation of the UF Postdoctoral Editors Association (UF-PEA), a service to help postdocs who seek to improve English grammar and writing style.  The UF-PEA is comprised of postdoc volunteers from multiple colleges across the University who will offer preliminary review of manuscripts, grant applications, posters, slides and other scholarly presentations.  While this service will be most useful to postdocs who speak English as a second language, the service is free and open to all postdocs at UF.  Our editors will provide feedback on structure and style of writing, but refrain from commenting on scholarship which is best honed by interactions between the postdoc and their mentor.  UF-PEA will facilitate higher level postdoc-mentor interactions by reducing time spent on basic writing needs.
