INSPIRE post-doctoral training program for biomedical sciences. Deadline May 1, 2012.
About: INSPIRE at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School (RWJMS) is a postdoctoral training program combining research training (70% effort) with preparation for and experience in teaching science to undergraduate students (30% effort). The INSPIRE (IRACDA New Jersey/ New York for Science Partnerships in Research and Education) Program, supported by an IRACDA (Institutional Research and Career Development Award) from the NIH, provides three years of support for postdoctoral fellows, with the option of extension of training supported by other sources. The INSPIRE Program fulfills two important goals: prepare university-trained Ph.D. scientists for careers as scientist- educators in undergraduate colleges while increasing the participation of diverse populations in biomedical science research. We also anticipate that the program will increase interaction of RWJMS faculty with students and faculty of the partner schools. It will also enhance development of other trainees at this school who can participate in INSPIRE activities to enhance their professional development including workshops on scientific writing and courses on scientific teaching.
