Connect with the Future of U.S. Innovation

Postdoctoral scholars ("postdocs") conduct research and support discovery in biomedical sciences, physical sciences, social & behavioral sciences, and humanities. They represent the next generation of academia and industry.


Postdocs represent tomorrow's leaders who drive global innovation.

Founded in 2003, the National Postdoctoral Association (NPA) seeks to provide a national voice for postdocs, to facilitate positive change for postdocs, and to advance postdoc career and professional development. The NPA’s membership includes 190 research organizations whose research is supported by approximately 80,000 postdocs.


The NPA Annual Meeting remains the largest national meeting and networking event dedicated to the postdoctoral community. The event has grown over the years and we anticipate approximately 350 attendees, including postdocs, administrators, and faculty. Disciplinary societies, industry, and organizations attend from across the nation. There are several opportunities for sponsorship that will allow corporations, institutions, associations, and societies to connect with postdocs in a meaningful way.


In 2016, we are hosting our Annual Meeting at the Van Andel Research Institute in Grand Rapids, MI.


By participating as a sponsor of the 2016 Annual Meeting, your organization will enjoy a number of benefits, including full recognition in meeting materials and exposure among Annual Meeting attendees. Your sponsorship will support the meeting, create goodwill, and increase awareness of your name at participants' organizations. You will want to connect with our postdocs from the across the country because postdocs are the driving force in the global research enterprise and will be tomorrow's leaders in innovation. This is a great opportunity to meet them in the early stages of their careers.
