2019 National Postdoc Appreciation Week Barbecue
September 19, 2019, 2019
National Postdoc Appreciation Week (NPAW), sponsored by the National Postdoctoral Association, takes place September 16-20, 2019. Now in its tenth 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 19, 2019 and would be pleased if you could join us.
Join us for check-in and fun photos at 11:30, followed by the barbecue at 12:00. The event is expected to last between 1.5 to 2 hours.
As part of this event, postdocs will be eligible to win prizes from a variety of on- and off-campus donors; in order to receive a prize, attendance is required at the time of the draw.
RSVPs for this event are required and can be submitted at https://ubc.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0CEYv4026eCZe5L. Those successfully registered will receive an email from the PDFO in advance of the barbecue. RSVPs are required by Thursday, September 12, 2019.
