National Postdoc Appreciation Week launches today, Sept. 18, and continues through Friday, Sept. 22. In collaboration with many campus partners, the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs has curated a roster of events in celebration of the Vanderbilt postdoc community.
Vanderbilt postdoctoral fellows are professionals who have earned doctoral degrees and are temporarily pursuing additional scholarly training, experience and research progress necessary for a wide range of career paths. Postdocs play an important role in Vanderbilt’s research enterprise and are integral to the discovery and learning mission of Vanderbilt University and Medical Center. At any given time, Vanderbilt has about 450 postdocs across both VU and VUMC.
