The NPA is pleased to announce the 10th annual celebration of National Postdoc Appreciation Week (NPAW): September 16-20, 2019! Submit your 2019 events to the NPA via this form. Scroll down to see the events planned for this year!

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. Events will be held throughout the week and across the country to create awareness.

The NPA and Elsevier are pleased to offer the 2019 Elsevier National Postdoc Appreciation Week (NPAW) Awards. The nation’s largest celebration of postdocs, NPAW was established in 2009 with the goal of acknowledging the significant contributions that postdoctoral scholars (“postdocs”) make to U.S. research and discovery.

The NPAW Toolkit is designed to help you decide what kind of event you would like to hold, be it a coffee hour, a happy hour, or a combined event with other institutions in your city or region. There are suggestions for different types of events, how to advertise the event, and getting sponsorship for your event. We've also provided fliers for you to download, customize, print out, and post or pass out.

In 2018, 108 institutions in the United States, Canada, Germany, and the United Kingdom participated and organized 432 events to recognize postdoctoral researchers. View the NPAW Archives to see the complete list.
