Postdoc Awards

Nominations for 2021 are closed.

(Deadline: 9th July 2021)

Due to social distancing, we are unlikely to hand out the awards at an event this year, but will announce the winners on the PDC Twitter account, @QUBPostdoc, during National Postdoc Appreciation Week on Wednesday 22 Sep from 2 pm. Be sure to tune in and like, share and comment to congratulate the winners!

The Postdoc Awards aim to recognise the exceptional contributions of postdocs to the University. In particular, the prizes aim to reward those who excel in what they do, who “go the extra-mile” in their research, in their contribution to the life of the University, in their contribution to Public Engagement and in the provision of support for their group, colleagues, School etc.

Set up for the first time in 2018 in the MHLS Faculty only, such awards have been offered in Queen's three Faculties from 2019. The number and categories of awards depend on the number of postdocs in each Faculty and the type of activities they are involved in (see details in the nomination procedure and forms).

All awards are awarded once a year during National Postdoc Appreciation Week.

We encourage all University staff to think of postdocs who have performed exceptionally well and to nominate them.
