Embark, Gladstone's Presidential Postdoctoral Program, aims to increase the representation of underrepresented minoritized groups within the sciences and at Gladstone. This program was launched in 2021 as part of our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Program Details:

-Scientific Research and Environment, Gladstone provides a dynamic and collaborative research environment, with emphasis on rigorous scientific training, personalized attention and mentoring, supplemented by close interactions with our colleagues at nearby universities, such as UC San Francisco, UC Berkeley, and Stanford.

-Career and Professional Development, Gladstone’s postdoctoral program is built to prepare you for a transition into an independent career, providing training in technical, professional, and leadership skills. Through courses offered at Gladstone, you’ll be able to expand your skills in data science, leadership and management, scientific and grant writing, and communication, in addition to receiving individual career counseling and guidance. Gladstone also hosts a number of events and programs for trainees to explore career opportunities in academics, industry, or nonprofits.

In addition to Gladstone’s mentoring programs, participants in the Embark program will be able to join monthly social, professional, and career development activities with the UCSF IRACDA (Institutional Research and Academic Career Development Award) program. All postdocs also have access to personalized career advising sessions with Gladstone’s Postdoc Office.
