Postdoc Appreciation Month

The National Postdoctoral Association has designated September 18-22, 2017 as National Postdoc Appreciation Week.  This is a time to recognize and appreciate our postdoctoral trainees who are a major driving force of research at our institution. Here at UMB we will be honoring our postdocs for the entire month of September.  During this month, the Office of Postdoctoral Scholars is hosting a large number of activities to acknowledge and honor the postdocs.  Please be sure to check out our National Postdoc Appreciation Month Flyer, Retreat Flyer, and our invitation to attend the Keynote Address by Jorge Cham, PhD, creator of PhD Comics.
