2019 National Postdoc Appreciation Week at UCSF

UCSF celebrated the tenth annual National Postdoc Appreciation Week (NPAW) from September 16 through September 20, 2019. The Office for Postdoctoral Scholars and our partners planned the activities to recognize our postdocs. We invited faculty, students, staff, and others who work closely with postdocs across UCSF to join us in celebrating the contributions of postdocs during NPAW!

Social Media

Celebrate postdocs on social media (Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram) by using the hashtags #ucsfNPAW, #ucsfpostdocs, #NPAW, and #NPAW2019.

Postdocs: Receive a FREE 7-Day Trial Membership to Bakar and Millberry Fitness & Recreation Centers!

Pick up your free pass between 9/16-9/20! If you become a member by 9/30, you will save 50% on enrollment, or pay ZERO enrollment with a friend.
