National Postdoc Appreciation Week (NPAW), sponsored by the National Postdoctoral Association, takes place September 18-22, 2017.  Now in its eighth year, National Postdoc Appreciation Week will be celebrated across Canada and the U.S. to create awareness of and recognize the contributions that postdocs make to research.  We hope that all supervisors recognize the efforts of their Postdocs during this week of celebration.
