GSA encourages the members of our community to join with their colleagues around the country to celebrate National Postdoc Appreciation Week (NPAW). This sixth annual event, sponsored by the National Postdoctoral Association (NPA), recognizes the significant contributions that postdoctoral scholars make to research and discovery. In 2010, NPAW was officially recognized by the U.S. House of Representatives.

Institutions across the country and around the world are encouraged to celebrate by hosting special events, from picnics and coffee houses to workshops and professional development events. See the NPA website for a growing list of events planned for this year. And if you’d like to organize your own event, NPA has even provided a toolkit to make it easy.


GSA celebrates postdocs throughout the year, including the following programs and opportunities:
