July 2, 2012,
12:00 PM - August 15, 2012,
I seek your nominations for candidates for the University of Minnesota Award for Outstanding Mentors of Postdoctoral Scholars. The award recognizes extraordinary performance and achievement in mentoring postdoctoral fellows, postdoctoral associates, and research associates at the University of Minnesota who are within five years of obtaining their PhDs. Outstanding mentoring is a critical element contributing to success during the postdoctoral training period. While faculty mentors play a key role in guiding postdoctoral scholars, this award recognizes a range of possible outstanding mentoring relationships.1 Up to two awards will be made. Each recipient will receive a commemorative plaque and be recognized during Postdoctoral Appreciation Week in September 2012.
