2024 Postdoc Excellence Awards
Submit your nominations for this year’s Postdoc Excellence Awards!
Nominations due 5 PM, March 31st 2024. Submit your nomination via this form.
The University of Wisconsin-Madison Postdoctoral Association (UWPA) is soliciting nominations for its 2024 Postdoc Excellence Awards. The awards were established to encourage and reward excellence, innovation, and effectiveness in the mentoring, teaching, and service of UW-Madison postdocs. There are three categories of award:
- Postdoc Excellence in Mentoring
- Postdoc Excellence in Teaching
- Postdoc Excellence in Service
Current postdocs may be nominated by themselves, current/former mentors and mentees, or colleagues. If postdocs nominate themselves we ask that they have either a mentor or mentee, as applicable, submit a letter of support simply stating that they have read your nomination letter and support it. Nomination letters (2 page maximum) should provide specific details as to how the nominated individual excels in a given category and why they are deserving of the award. It is important that you address the specific criteria listed in the provided rubrics, as they will be used to judge nominations for each of the awards: mentoring, teaching, and service.
Winners of the 2024 Postdoc Excellence Awards will be recognized at the UWPA Celebration of Postdoc Excellence on 17th May 2024. Nominations should be submitted via this form.
Applications must be submitted electronically by 5 PM on March 31, 2024. Questions? Contact the UWPA Postdoc Awards Committee (firstname.lastname@example.org)
