Dr. Gabby Wolff, postdoc in the Riffell Lab, has been awarded the UW Graduate School’s 2019 Postdoc Mentoring Award.
As the Associate Dean of Student and Postdoctoral Affairs put it: (Dr. Wolff) was selected as a finalist because of her incredible commitment to the graduate students (and often undergrads) in her research group, and for her attention to mentoring for the whole person, including career and personal support, as well as being an exceptional researcher herself.
The Graduate School and the UW Office of Postdoctoral Affairs awards an annual Mentoring Award for Postdoctoral Trainees to recognize and honor the tremendous role postdocs play in student research and training at UW. The patience postdocs demonstrate in spending time investing in students, even while advancing their own research and career, is a model of what we would hope to see among mentors. As we heard over and over again in the letters, postdocs serve as mentors who guide, push and inspire students to become their best selves. The Mentoring Award recipient receives an honorarium of $2,000.
Among her many achievements and generous service, Gabby has been an exceptional postdoctoral representative on the GPC. We are so proud to have her in our community, and thank her for all that she does!
