2017 National Postdoc Appreciation Week Barbecue
Date & Time
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.
UBC, and especially the PDFO, would like to take this opportunity to thank our Postdocs for their hard work and for all the contributions they have made. As a token of our appreciation, we will be hosting our Annual BBQ event on Thursday, September 21, 2017 and would be pleased if you could join us. Registration deadline extended to 4:00 PM on Friday, September 15, 2017.
