Connect With the Next Generation of Academia & Industry


Now approaching its 15th year, the Annual Meeting remains the largest national meeting and networking event dedicated to the postdoctoral community. The event has grown over the years, and we anticipate approximately 500 attendees, including postdoctoral scholars, administrators, and faculty. Representatives from disciplinary societies, industry representatives, and corporations also attend.


Postdoctoral scholars ("postdocs") conduct research and support discovery in biomedical sciences, physical sciences, social and behavioral sciences, and humanities. They represent the next generation of academia and industry. Postdocs represent tomorrow's leaders who drive global innovation.


There are several opportunities for sponsorship that will allow corporations, institutions, associations, and societies to connect with postdocs in a meaningful way.


By participating as a sponsor of the 2017 Annual Meeting, your organization will enjoy a number of benefits, including showcasing your products and services to potential clients, and receiving full recognition in meeting materials and exposure among Annual Meeting attendees. Your sponsorship will support the meeting, create goodwill, and increase awareness of your name at participants' organizations. You will want to connect with our postdocs from the across the country - the driving force in the global research enterprise and will be tomorrow's leaders in innovation. This is a great opportunity to meet them in the early stages of their careers.


Note:

  1. Please read through the terms on each respective product page to familiarize yourself of deadlines and sponsorship specifics.
  2. During the transaction, please provide the contact information for the individual who should receive all future sponsorship correspondence.
