The UC San Francisco Graduate Division, in collaboration with the UCSF Office for Postdoctoral Scholars and the UCSF Office of Career and Professional Development, has published findings and conclusions from a study of postdoctoral career outcomes initiated in 2014. The paper, entitled “Tracking Career Outcomes for Postdoctoral Scholars: A Call to Action,” was published in May in PLOS Biology. Elizabeth Silva, PhD, associate dean of graduate programs, was lead author on the paper.
Noting his “extraordinary contributions to the scientific community,” the Graduate Division awarded the 2016 Distinguished Alumnus Award to postdoc alum Art Levinson at a gala dinner on April 9th during the recent UCSF Alumni Weekend festivities at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco.
Congratulations to UCSF postdoc alumnus Antiño Allen, PhD, who was recently named a 2016 Emerging Scholar by Diverse: Issues in Higher Education magazine. Allen is one of twelve minority scholars age 40 or under recognized in the January 28, 2016 issue for their excellence in research, teaching, and mentoring, and their commitment to service. Highlighted in particular is Antiño's perseverance in pursuing his PhD work at night while serving two tours of duty as a company commander in the U.S.
