LKSC Berg Hall Conference Center, Thursday September 20th, 2012
The winners of the 2012 annual SUPD Mentoring Awards are (in alphabetical order):
As we all acknowledge, our postdoc training, and overall postdoc-experience is vastly shaped by the mentoring of our Faculty Advisors. Good mentoring skills is hard to master; and good mentoring is demanding and not often directly rewarded. As, SUPD, we would like to honor such mentors by acknowledging their significant contributions to the lives of their mentees. Thus, if your Faculty Advisor is such a mentor, honor her/his inputs by nominating him/her. Postdoc Jurors will review the nominations and judge based on a selection of criteria. The awardees will be notified by September 12th and be acknowledged to the Stanford community during the Symposium, on September 20th.
This is a unique opportunity to thank your Advisor so don't miss it!
Looking forward to receiving your applications.
Submissions are due by 6pm – September 7th, 2012.
