The NPA is pleased to sponsor the fourth annual celebration, National Postdoc Appreciation Week, on September 17-21, 2012. Events will be held throughout the week and across the country to create awareness of and recognize the contributions that postdocs make to the U.S. scientific research enterprise.
Since 2009, the NPA 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. In 2011, 89 institutions in 30 states and Canada hosted 171 events to show their appreciation of postdocs.
