Academic Level:
Postdoc & Early Career

Description:
Fellowships are available in the Training in Education and Critical Research Skills Program (TEACRS) at Tufts University. This NIH-funded program is designed to prepare talented postdoctoral trainees with the career skills needed to succeed in academic biomedical research. Trainees spend on average 75% of their time conducting bench research and 25% of their time in career development activities that will help them manage the multiple demands of a faculty position. Opportunities are available in a wide range of biomedical research disciplines. Teaching skills are developed through programs involving mentored classroom assignments at minority-serving institutions in the Boston area. The training is supplemented by workshops and seminars on teaching methods, career opportunities in academia, and essential skills such as grant writing, mentoring, lab management and scientific presentations. The training components are sequenced to allow trainees to balance the activities and to build on previous experiences. TEACRS fellows receive up to four years of salary support (matching NIH stipend levels) and a yearly travel and supply allowance. They will complete our program ready to manage a successful research program, teach, and balance the multifaceted demands inherent in a career as an academic scientist.
