HHMI BioScholar Postdoctoral Fellows Program
Updated by Janaina on July 2, 1:00pm

We are pleased to invite applications from individuals interested in pursing postdoctoral training in the development, implementation and evaluation of undergraduate biology educational programs. The Wisconsin Institute for Science Education and Community Engagement, WISCIENCE (formerly the Institute for Biology Education) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, with support from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI), is developing a set of activities and courses as part of our HHMI Foundations for Success Program to help first year, first generation and underrepresented minority undergraduate students succeed. Two new fellows will be added to our postdoc learning community, which currently includes 3 fellows, and be responsible for the development, pilot testing and evaluation of either a peer leadership training program or an introduction to service learning course. All applicants will be considered for both positions, but should indicate their preference in the cover letter.


Application Deadline: July 31, 2014.
