Darryl Thelen, Bernard A. and Frances M. Weideman Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, is among five University of Wisconsin-Madison faculty members who received postdoc mentoring awards in 2019 for outstanding work in mentoring the next generation of scientists and researchers on campus.

The postdoc mentoring award recognizes UW-Madison faculty who contribute their time, knowledge, energy and enthusiasm to mentoring and advancing postdocs in their labs. Faculty members are nominated by current or former postdocs. The award is given by the University of Wisconsin Postdoctoral Association (UWPA), a volunteer-run association of postdoctoral researchers at UW-Madison, who advocate for and seek to enhance the experience of postdocs on campus.
