Four postdocs at Cornell were honored with a Postdoc Achievement Award Sept. 18 at the Big Red Barn as part of Cornell’s celebration of National Postdoc Appreciation Week. In its second year, the awards are now co-sponsored by the Office of the Vice Provost for Research and include a monetary prize of $500.

The awards recognize postdoctoral scholars who have made contributions to community and show commitment to promoting inclusion at Cornell and in society. Fifty-eight postdocs were nominated and endorsed by letters from faculty, staff, graduate and undergraduate students in one or more categories. A committee of three people who interact with postdocs regularly reviewed the nominations and made final decisions.
