Postdoc Appreciation Week

NPAW 2019

KUMC Celebrates the Achievements and Contributions of Postdoctoral Scholars

During National Postdoc Appreciation Week (NPAW)

The NPA is pleased to announce the 10th annual celebration of National Postdoc Appreciation Week (NPAW): September 16-20, 2019!

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 Office of Postdoctoral Affairs is joining the celebration by organizing and hosting several events, listed below.
