This week is UK Postdoc appreciation week (PAW), a celebration of the fantastic contribution postdocs and researchers make towards research and academic life in general. It’s a special time to showcase, recognise, and celebrate their efforts, and thank them for all they do!
Originally an initiative from the National Postdoc Association in the USA (National Postdoc Appreciation Week), it is now also celebrated in the UK, with the first ever UK/ROI-wide events organised in 2020 by a consortium of UK and Irish Universities.
In 2021, it is taking place from Monday 20 September to Friday 24 September.
During PAW, please use #LovePostdocs and #NPAW2021 in your Tweets!
Online participation is encouraged, so please celebrate the postdocs in your life, or if you’re a postdoc, share your profile.
And on behalf of RDS, can I say a huge thank you to our amazing postdocs at BU; you are a critical component of our research ecosystem and inspire our department every day.
