Graduate School Mentoring Award for Postdoctoral Trainees

Each year, the Graduate School presents the Graduate School Mentoring Award for Postdoctoral Trainees to trainees who have proven to be outstanding mentors in the lab, in the field or in the classroom. Mentoring can be related to one or more of the following areas:

  • Research design and analysis
  • Career and professional advice
  • Personal guidance

Nominations can be made by undergraduate students, graduate students, other postdoctoral scholars, faculty or staff. The award includes a $1,500 prize and recognition during the annual honors banquet. The nomination process requires a recommendation letter (250-500 words) and completion of a nomination form.

Nominations will be reviewed by a panel of faculty, postdocs, and graduate students. Nominations are due March 28, 2019, and winners will be announced April 12, 2019.

Congratulations to the 2019 recipient of the Graduate School Mentoring Award for Postdoctoral Trainees, Dr. Aridany Suarez-Trujillo, from the Plaut-mammary biology laboratory.

Thank you to all those that participated in the nomination process, this year. We received over 25 nominations! It was a pleasure to see so many examples of our postdocs shaping the careers of others!
