National Postdoc Appreciation Week (NPAW) 2021

Monday, September 20, 2021 (all day)

Graduate Studies and Postdoctoral Affairs (GSPA) is pleased to announce that the University of Waterloo is one of 90+ institutions across Canada and the United States taking part in National Postdoc Appreciation Week from September 20 to September 24, 2021. This is our sixth annual event! 

To show appreciation for University of Waterloo postdocs, GSPA is: 

  • Planning several professional development, social, and wellness events throughout Postdoc Appreciation Week. Most of these events are virtual, but we are capping the week with in-person drinks and food at the Grad House.  
  • Providing Waterloo postdocs with a small gift, which can be picked up any day next week from the GSPA front desk during business hours.  
  • Launching a Postdoc Showcase all of next week, where each day two participating postdocs will be featured on the Daily Bulletin, alongside a link to our expanding profile page.
