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.
