Dear postdocs,

National Postdoc Appreciation Week is Sept. 16–20 — a time to celebrate postdocs and their immeasurable contributions to the scientific community.

Here’s what we have planned at the ASBMB:

  • Membership deals for new and existing early-career members
  • Daily coffee breaks: Join us on Twitter at 1 p.m. for the chance to win a cup of coffee on us!
  • Thank-you shout-outs: Email us with photos and a message for your postdocs. We’ll share it on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!
  • Webinar on Sept. 17: Learn more on the ASBMB webinars page.
  • Twitter chat on Sept. 19 (use #ASBMBLovesPostdocs)

Thank you and happy National Postdoc Appreciation Week!

With love from the ASBMB
