2021 Postdoctoral Scholars & Mentors Awards Ceremony

I love postdocs buttons.

On April 13, 2021 UCLA’s postdoctoral scholars and their mentors will be honored for their important contributions to the university’s interrelated missions of research, teaching, and service at the annual Postdoctoral Scholars & Mentors Awards Ceremony. This year’s event will take place virtually from 4 pm – 6 pm.

The Chancellor’s Awards for Postdoctoral Research which recognizes individual research accomplishments that show clear potential to have meaningful and enduring implications in their field will be presented at the event along with the Postdoctoral Scholars Mentoring Awards that are administered by the Postdoctoral Association at UCLA.  The Mentoring Awards honor UCLA faculty members who have gone above and beyond the call of duty in helping postdoctoral scholars develop successful careers.
