The Distinguished Postdoc Mentor Award is awarded on an annual basis to faculty members who excel in the mentoring of postdoctoral scholars. A good mentor not only teaches their mentees but also serves as an advocate, advisor and positive role model during the period of direct training and most often, in the following years.
Nominations must be made by a postdoctoral scholar at UB, Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center, Clinical and Research Institute on Addictions, or Hauptman-Woodward Institute, and are limited to one nomination per postdoc, per year. Nominations will be collected in the fall semester and winners will be selected in the spring semester.
Check back in fall 2022 for the next nomination cycle.
A nominee must be a faculty member of the University at Buffalo. Awardees are not eligible to receive the Distinguished Postdoc Mentor Award in consecutive years.
The Distinguished Postdoc Mentor Award recognizes mentors who excel in the mentoring of postdoctoral scholars through support, encouragement and promotion of your research training, professional and personal development, and career goals.
Postdocs will be asked to identify the categories in which the nominee excels as a postdoc mentor. Nominations are not limited to the categories above, but must include one or more specific examples of how the nominee has provided you personally with excellent mentoring in each category selected. Nominators are encouraged to prepare responses in a separate document, and copy/paste their prepared text onto the online nomination form.
The recipient of the award will be chosen by the Distinguished Postdoc Mentor Award Selection Committee, which will consist of faculty and postdocs.
