Postdoc Mentoring Award

Postdoc Mentoring Awards

The Postdoc Mentoring Awards recognize faculty on the UW-Madison campus that contribute their time, knowledge, energy, and enthusiasm to mentoring and advancing postdocs in their labs. Faculty are nominated by current or former postdocs, and each year we receive numerous nominations from postdocs seeking to recognize the outstanding mentoring they receive. Every year, we can only select a few of the of the outstanding nominations to receive the award, but are grateful for all the work the faculty at UW-Madison engage in with postdocs that makes UW-Madison an excellent place to work and develop. Click through the links below to see the list of award winners from previous years. Faculty will be listed with their degree, and department as of 2019.
