From Ashley Fenn, Co-Chair of the Massachusetts General Postdoc Association and Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Postdoctoral Research:
Hello Fellow Postdoc Associations!
My name is Ashley Fenn and I am the Co-Chair of the Massachusetts General Postdoc Association. I am also the Editor-in-Chief for the Journal of Postdoctoral Research.
Over the last 12 months we have awarded 6 Postdoc of the Month Awards to postdocs across the US. These postdocs were featured on our website, highlighted in their month’s issue of the Journal of Postdoctoral Research, had a featured Editorial written about their work, and are now eligible to compete for our $500 Travel Award for Postdoc of the Year.
Our last Postdoc of the Month winner for 2016 has already been selected and will be featured in our November issue.
I am writing to you because we are now accepting applications for our January 2017 and March 2017 Postdoc of the Month Award. I ask that you please circulate the attached announcement to the postdocs at your respective institutions and/or nominate postdocs from your constituency who you feel have exemplary research and community involvement. The deadline for January applications is approaching quickly!
We look forward to receiving your postdocs’ applications and hope that your institution can be represented among our winners!!
If you have any questions please feel free to email me.
Ashley Fenn, PhD
