As part of National PostDoc Appreciation Week, Lehigh hosted a series of events Sept. 18-22 in recognition of the hard work, commitment and contributions of postdoctoral scholars to research and discovery at the university.
The weeklong celebration opened with an inaugural postdoc appreciation reception. In addition, Lehigh provided the scholars with opportunities for networking, job application consultations and photography sessions for professional headshots.
“We are gathering to give our amazing postdocs the recognition they deserve,” said Jenny Chao, program manager, Postdoctoral Affairs Office, at the reception. “Postdocs are one of the most essential positions that drive research forward. Not only that, but postdocs contribute to innovation, teaching and supervision.”
Lehigh has about 60 postdoctoral scholars across disciplines.
