2018 Annual Conference Career Connections
Now approaching its 16th year, the Annual Conference remains the largest national meeting and networking event dedicated to the postdoctoral community. The event continues to grow and we anticipate approximately 500 attendees this year. Conference attendees include postdoctoral scholars, administrators, and faculty, along with representatives from disciplinary societies, industry, and corporations.
Postdoctoral scholars ("postdocs") conduct research and support discovery in biomedical sciences, physical sciences, social and behavioral sciences, the humanities, and other important academic disciplines. They represent the next generation of research, academia, and industry. Postdocs represent tomorrow's leaders who will drive advancements in technology, policy, medicine and the global research enterprise.
The NPA will host an information session for companies to showcase their opportunities and interact with postdoctoral scholars. This will be a round-table, speed meet-and-greet session, where companies will give a five-minute presentation and each postdoc will introduce themselves.
As part of this $2,000 package, each company will receive two (2)
complimentary conference registrations, participation in the Career
Connections event, and an ad on the mobile event app. The
first five (5) companies that confirm a spot for this event will receive
a complimentary exhibit table as part of the package!
Tentative schedule for the session (2 hours 45 minutes):
- 15 minutes: introductions and instructions on how the event will work
