ALL ACADEMICS AT UC SAN DIEGO
To honor and encourage faculty mentors who serve as effective advisors, advocates, role models, and colleagues, we are excited to announce the Garnett-Powers and Associates "What Powers You: Excellence in Postdoctoral Scholar Mentoring Award". UC San Diego Postdoctoral Scholars are individuals who have recently completed a doctoral degree and, under the oversight of a faculty mentor, continue research training in preparation for a career in academe, industry, government, or the nonprofit sector. Faculty mentors who provide guidance, support, and inspiration to research and career excellence are essential to the success of the postdoctoral scholar. This award recognizes faculty who consistently promote and actively engage in the many forms of mentorship.
Additionally, the postdoctoral scholar whose mentor receives the award will receive up to $2,000 to use toward career development or education activities.
