BWH PDA Year At-A-Glance

The BWH Postdoctoral Association is active throughout the year with events, opportunities, impromptu gatherings, and resources to support postdocs with any part of their experience.

This page provides an at-a-glance overview of the big flagship events we have planned for this year, but there is plenty more to explore. Check out our homepage and upcoming events for full details and other ways to get involved. And as always, reach out to if you have ideas, suggestions, or questions for the PLC!

National Postdoc Appreciation Week

September 18 - 22

National Postdoc Appreciation Week (NPAW) happens on the third week of September every year. We will have events open to the whole community throughout the week. Stay tuned for more info!

Postdoc Career Fair

Early November

We plan to host a career fair inviting industry partners to give postdocs a chance to network and identify opportunities to continue their scientific careers after they complete their training at BWH.

Winter Holiday Party


Celebrate the end of the calendar year with us! This holiday party is a chance for everyone in the postdoc community to come together and ward off the cold with good company, food and hot chocolate.

Postdoc Trivia


Postdocs have a lot of knowledge about more than just science, and this is your chance to show it off! Bring a team or sign up individually to be matched with others at the time of the event. Gift card prizes will be awarded to the winner!

Summer Olympics / Sports Day


As the weather improves, it’s time to get outside and get active – and CRUSH the (friendly) competition! Join us for a day of fun in the sun. All experience levels welcome, and there will be multiple activities to participate in.
