The National Postdoc Appreciation Week (NPAW) has been created by the National Postdoc Association in the USA and has been celebrated since 2009 all over the world.

This year, Queen's University Belfast is organising festivities for the first time in Northern Ireland!

These include a free public screening of a science-related movie followed by an interactive discussion with postdocs, a prizes ceremony, the launch of a specific website and multiple ways to show recognition to postdocs.

The aim of the NPAW is to raise awareness and celebrate the incredible achievements of postdoctoral researchers.
