Join us in Cleveland!


Case Western Reserve University (CWRU), an independent research university located in Cleveland’s University Circle, will serve as host of the 16th Annual Conference. The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs at CWRU confers with the NPA on issues of policy and practice involving postdocs, and works closely with the NPA to provide accurate data on postdocs and university policies so that advocacy for postdocs on a national level can continue.

 

The conference will take place at the Renaissance Cleveland Hotel, an icon of the city's impressive architecture and abundant history.

 

Connect to the Future Generation of Academia & Industry


Now approaching its 16th year, the Annual Conference remains the largest national conference and networking event dedicated to the postdoctoral community. The event continues to grow and we anticipate approximately 500 attendees this year. Conference attendees include postdoctoral scholars, administrators, and faculty, along with representatives from disciplinary societies, industry, and corporations.


Postdoctoral scholars ("postdocs") conduct research and support discovery in biomedical sciences, physical sciences, social and behavioral sciences, the humanities, and other important academic disciplines. They represent the next generation of research, academia, and industry. Postdocs represent tomorrow's leaders who will drive advancement in technology, policy, medicine, and the global research enterprise.


Participating sponsors of the 2018 Annual Conference enjoy a number of opportunities to showcase your resources and services to potential clients, while receiving full recognition in conference materials and exposure among Annual Conference attendees. Sponsorship of the Annual Conference offers long-lasting benefits: sponsors connect with postdocs and NPA stakeholders from the across the country, creating goodwill and increasing awareness of your organization with participants. There are several opportunities for sponsorship that will allow corporations, institutions, associations, and societies to connect with postdocs in a meaningful way.

 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

  1. There are a limited number of sponsorship packages, and these will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis.
  2. Sponsors understand that all attendees must officially register for the conference. During the transaction, please provide the contact information for the individual who should receive all future sponsorship correspondence.
  3. Please read through the terms on each respective product page to familiarize yourself of deadlines and sponsorship specifics.

Contact Amy N. Wilson, Office & Marketing Manager, with any questions.
