Connect to the Future Generation of Academia & Industry


Now approaching its 17th 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 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 2019 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.

  1. There are a limited number of sponsorship packages, and these will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis.
