Dr Johan Lidberg nominated for MPA Supervisor of the Year

School of Media, Film and Journalism staff member Dr Johan Lidberg has been nominated for the Monash Postgraduate Association 2016 Supervisor of the Year Award.

Dr Lidberg is one of 27 nominees from across Monash University.

“I feel quite honoured as this is a direct nomination from my PhD candidates,” Dr Lidberg said.

“Every PhD project is like a three and a half year journey full of ups and downs and a lot of learning for all parties, that’s why it’s so enjoyable.”

The award ceremony will take place on December 9, 2016 at Monash’s Clayton campus.
According to the Monash Postgraduate Association website, the Supervisor of the Year award was created to acknowledge and celebrate excellence in research supervision practice.

It has been awarded since 1992.

“The MPA award is truly a decision of the postgraduate community. Supervisors are nominated by their postgraduate students and entries are judged by an independent subcommittee of research postgraduates drawn from the MPA Executive Committee,” the  Monash Postgraduate Association wrote on its website.
