Three Cheers for Postdocs!

Today marks the first annual “National Postdoc Appreciation Day” to celebrate the significant contribution that postdocs make to the U.S. scientific endeavor. What’s a “postdoc?” Few non-scientists are aware of this brief phase in many scientists’ careers, after they have already spent five to six years earning a Ph.D. It’s often an intense period of research, so it’s rare to find so many postdocs gathered in one place, as they are above for an annual postdoc breakfast at WHOI.
