On 19 June, Imperial’s Postdoc and Fellows Development Centre (PFDC) hosted its fifth Reps Awards Dinner.
The annual awards recognise the significant contributions our Postdoc Representatives (Reps) make to the College, and we are delighted to congratulate Syed Anas Imtiaz — one of our PFDC Reps from Electrical and Electronic Engineering — who was one of the five finalists nominated for the PFDC Individual Award for his continuous contribution to the postdoc community.
“Anas was one of the founders of the EEE postdoc committee and has since contributed significantly. He has always encouraged skills development and collaborations through the organisation of many training and social events.
I would also like to mention the realisation of our two very successful research symposiums. I have always found his contribution, support and balance very effective in making our activities successful." Comment from one of Anas’ nominators.
The PFDC provides a programme of activities that supports the personal and professional development of the 2300 postdocs and fellows at Imperial, and the Reps within departments help to:
- foster a sense of community amongst Imperial early career researchers
- act as a link between the PFDC, early career researchers and their departments
- help the PFDC keep abreast of the challenges facing early career researchers.
After being presented with his award by the Provost, Professor Ian Walmsley, Anas said:
"It’s been an honour for me to be a representative for the wonderful EEE postdoc and fellows community. I am proud of the work we have done as reps to organise several events including the hugely successful Postdoc and Fellows Research Symposium. I am very thankful for the support we have received from our Head of Department and others and very pleased that all the hard work put in by the reps has been acknowledged with this award.”
Congratulations to Anas, and thank you to all our postdoc and fellows reps.
