National Postdoc Appreciation Week

The 8th Annual National Postdoc Appreciation Week is Sept 18 - 22. Since 2009, the National Postdoc Association has sponsored this event to recognize the significant contributions that postdoctoral scholars make to U.S. research and discovery. The BSD Postdoc Association, BSD Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Affairs, Physical Sciences Division, and UChicago GRAD are hosting several events to recognize UChicago postdocs. We encourage staff, students, and faculty members to recognize and celebrate their postdocs individually as well during this weeklong celebration.
