Senior graduate students and/or recent PhD graduates from underrepresented groups who might be interested in an expense-paid visit to Nashville this spring to meet with potential faculty postdoc mentors at Vanderbilt University can visit their website for more information and to apply. The recruitment event is being held in conjunction with the annual Vanderbilt Postdoctoral Symposium, so future fellows can also attend the Postdoc Symposium the next day and meet up with postdoctoral fellows at Vanderbilt during the poster session.
SBU Three-Minute Thesis Any MD or PhD student who has advanced to candidacy and has dissertation findings to present can sign up to compete in Stony Brook’s three minute thesis, or 3MT® for short, and receive coaching on how to present these finding in an engaging way to a general audience in just three minutes. The event will be held Friday, April 13, 2018 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the Wang Center. Speakers must commit to attending three trainings from the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science on March 6, March 20, and April 2 or 3. While 3MT is a competition, SBU emphasizes the professional development derived from a cohort approach where students participate in small group coaching that encourages peer feedback and support. Space is limited, and competitors’ slots are allocated on a first come, first served basis. Cash prizes are awarded for 1st, 2nd, 3rd place, and People's Choice talks.

Presidential Diversity Postdoctoral Fellowships at Binghamton University Increasing campus diversity is one of Binghamton University's most important strategic priorities. Binghamton is meeting this challenge with the establishment of a program of Presidential Diversity Postdoctoral Fellowships that will allow the university to better recruit highly qualified candidates for research and scholarship in disciplines that have found it difficult to attract a diverse faculty. This fellowship program mirrors the goals of the SUNY faculty diversity program which advance diversity and inclusive excellence by encouraging the recruitment, retention and promotion of outstanding scholars from different backgrounds, including individuals from groups who have historically been underrepresented in higher education. Our goal is to develop top-tier candidates when faculty positions appear in these departments, so that they may remain at Binghamton in a tenure track capacity when their postdoctoral work is completed. Each fellowship appointment is up to two years. Find more information and apply here.
