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 programor an introduction to service learning course. All applicants will be considered for both positions, but should indicate their preference in the cover letter.
We invite you to drop in anytime between 9:00 and 11:00am to learn more about Delta offerings and opportunities for professional development in teaching, learning and mentoring. Start working towards your professional goals early in your graduate student career. We hope to see you there!
