Postdoc Appreciation Week

About Postdoc Appreciation Week

Since 2009, the National Postdoctoral Association has sponsored National Postdoc Appreciation Day/Week to recognize the significant contributions that postdoctoral scholars make to U.S. research and discovery. Institutions from across the country and other parts of the world participate by holding special events.

In 2010, this week was officially recognized by the U.S. House of Representatives. Events will be held throughout the week and across the country to create awareness.

The ninth annual celebration of National Postdoc Appreciation Week (NPAW) will be held September 17-21, 2018.

Please visit this page in August 2018 to learn about the NPAW activities planned for UC Davis postdoctoral scholars.
