Professor Jean VanderGheynst to receive Distinguished Postdoctoral Scholar Mentoring Award

Professor Jean VanderGheynst was selected by the Graduate Council Graduate Student and Postdoctoral Scholar Welfare Committee as the recipient of the 2016 Distinguished Postdoctoral Scholar Mentoring Award.

This award recognizes the vital role mentoring plays in the academic and professional development of postdoctoral scholars at the UC Davis, and recognizes faculty who have shown an outstanding commitment to mentoring in the overall success of the university’s postdoctoral scholars. The Committee received a number of outstanding nominations this year, but felt that because of Dr. VanderGheynst’s mentoring accomplishments, she was the most deserving of the award.

An Honors and Awards Ceremony is scheduled for Monday, May 23, at which she will be recognized for her achievement. The ceremony will take place in the Multipurpose Room (MPR) in the Student Community Center (SCC), from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Congratulations to Dr. VanderGheynst for her excellence in mentoring postdoctoral scholars!
