AQUIDOC : Association of Junior Researchers of Aquitaine
AquiDoc is a pluridisciplinary association set up in 2007 whose primary mission is to encourage junior researchers (doctoral students and Ph.D. graduates) to take up a career in the non-academic sector. With this goal in mind, AquiDoc offers all Junior researchers in Aquitaine information, advice and workshops to help prepare their recruitment, especially by organising the annual Jobs Forum or Forum AquiDoc.

ADUPPA : Association of PhD graduates of UPPA
The Association of Ph.D. Graduates of the Université of Pau and Adour Area (ADUPPA) was first officially set up in 2014, on the initiative of a small group of volunteer Science Ph.D. graduates of the UPPA. It is open to all Ph.D. graduates of the university, whether they come from the hard Sciences or from the Social and Human Sciences, and whatever the sector they are active in, public or private, industry, teaching or research, or whether they have now retired.
The aims of the association are :
1. To offer support to young doctoral students and facilitate their gaining access to the workplace by sharing the experience of their elders,
2. To create a point of reference allowing Ph.D. graduates to remain in touch with eachother and with their university all through their careers,
3. To encourage the sharing of experience and information by means of all communication methods,
4. To build a true spirit of community and solidarity, with a common pride of the kind observed in most of the renowned French “grandes écoles”.
Over the last two years, we have already been able to organise “Question & answer” forums addressing Ph.D. students; we have also taken active part in the university’s “Career Access Support Open Days” and are regularly invited to attend Doctoral School meetings. We have now also started to organise “coaching” and mentors especially for Ph.D. students. Our Internet site (http://aduppa.univ-pau.fr) will continue to be developed to improve communication between doctoral students and enable the association to be better known outside the university. We will be working to further expand our activities with plans to organise site visits and theme conferences attended by new members now active in the workplace, as well as examining the feasibility of practice sessions for job interviews
UPPA PhD Graduates Directory
L'Université de Pau et des Pays de l'Adour a fait soutenir près d'un millier de thèses de doctorat dans le secteur scientifique, depuis sa création.
L'Ecole Doctorale des Sciences Exactes et leurs Applications (ED 211) et l'Association des Masters et Doctorants de l'UPPA (AMDA) ont souhaité, fin 2010, mettre en place un "Annuaire des Docteurs de l'UPPA" pour créer un réseau qui permettra d'établir dans la durée un lien entre les anciens doctorants, l'Université et les doctorants actuels.
L'adhésion à ce réseau permet aussi de disposer d'une adresse mail de type "firstname.lastname@example.org".
L'accès à l'annuaire est restreint à la communauté des docteurs des ED SEA et SSH de notre université ainsi qu'aux aux membres de l'AMDA. Pour toute question technique, ou pour obtenir vos codes d'accès, merci de bien vouloir vous adresser à email@example.com (agnes.binet @ univ-pau.fr?subject=ODE%20-%20Annuaire%20des%20docteurs%20de%20l%27UPPA).
