Postdocs are doing an incredible work for the University and, in addition to driving our research forward, contribute to our innovation, teaching or public engagement, thus contributing to shape a new generation of curious and talented individuals. However, between deadlines, busy schedules and all the setbacks involved with research, it's sometimes easy to forget!
The PDC is commited to promote ways to show our postdocs that we value their contribution:
We celebrate our talented QUB postdocs during National Postdoc Appreciation Week (NPAW), the week of the third Monday of September!View the NPAW's page
The PDC awards prizes to recognise postdoc excellence in research, public engagement, citizenship and support of students and staff.PDC Postdoc Prizes

Thank you to all the managers who are supporting their postdocs and making them feel valued; you are making a massive difference motivating them, boosting their confidence and kicking the imposter's syndrome away!
As a postdoc's manager, there are multiple ways you can use to show your postdocs that you appreciate their work, either with formal University recognition schemes or by very simple day-to-day gestures (click on + to see examples).
