Celebrating Postdoc Appreciation Week
Recognising the dedication and achievements of all our postdocs
Postdoc Appreciation Week, which took place from 18-22 September, highlighted the dedication and accomplishments of all postdocs. The week was marked by a series of events and awards at The University of Edinburgh, showcasing the invaluable contributions made by our postdocs to the academic community.
Postdoc poster symposium
One such event was the Postdoc Poster Symposium hosted at the Institute for Regeneration and Repair (IRR). Organised by the BioQuarter Postdoc Society committee, which includes Shima Abdullateef from the Usher Institute, the symposium provided a platform for postdocs to present their ground-breaking research -fostering collaboration and knowledge-sharing.
Postdoc recognition awards
The College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine also played a significant role in recognising the achievements of postdoctoral researchers by hosting recognition awards, honouring the outstanding efforts of these dedicated professionals. Congratulations are in order for all the nominees and award winners. Among the notable award recipients were Usher Institute’s Dr Regina Prigge receiving the Central Campus Student Supervision and Support Award and Dr Karen Jeffrey receiving the Central Campus Citizenship Award.
Postdoc Appreciation Week offers us a chance to celebrate the indispensable work done by all our postdocs at The University of Edinburgh. Their dedication and passion continue to drive innovation and advance knowledge across various fields, making them an integral part of the academic landscape. Well done everyone!
