By Courtney Chandler | Oct. 18, 2016
The San Diego Institutional Research and Academic Career Development Award is seeking postdoctoral applicants for a three-year program.
This program, sponsored by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences at the National Institutes of Health, places a focus on research and teaching, and is geared toward scientists who wish to make careers in academia.
It provides mentoring, teaching and postdoctoral research experience through the University of California, San Diego, and minority-serving partner institutions, including San Diego State University and San Diego City College.
Applicants can include Ph.D. graduates or near-graduates, M.D.s, M.D./Ph.D.s or postdoctoral fellows with less than two years of post-graduate training.
Candidates from under-represented groups in the biomedical field and those with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
Courtney Chandler is a biochemistry Ph.D. candidate at the University of Maryland, Baltimore.
