“Applying to Teaching-based Academic Jobs”
Sydella Blatch, Ph.D. (a former NICHD postdoc)
Assistant Professor of Biology, Stevenson University
This workshop will provide an overview of what the teaching-based professorship is like on a daily basis and how it differs from being at a research-intensive institution. It will also focus on ways to stand out to various search committees and interpret job ads to identify what key elements to include in an application.
Individual consultations will be available following the workshop. This will give you an opportunity to ask specific questions about your own faculty job packet.
Please note there are 10 slots left. If you are interested, sign up soon by sending Yvette Pittman (firstname.lastname@example.org) an email.

For All New Fellows: NICHD Postdoc Orientation
Room 2A48, building 31
What unique opportunities are available to you at the NICHD?
You can learn the answer at our quarterly NICHD postdoc orientation. This orientation is separate from all of the other orientations and supplements the NIH-wide Office of Intramural Training and Education session. If you recently joined an intramural NICHD lab as a postdoc or visiting fellow, please plan to attend this NICHD-specific event.
Led by the NICHD Office of Education, the orientation will highlight both NICHD and NIH-wide intramural resources for postdoc fellows. Topics will include career-planning tools, grant opportunities for fellows, ideas for presenting your science locally, and the core facilities available to you. You will have the opportunity to meet fellows from other research areas and in different buildings. And we will share information on our key programs that support your professional development, complementing the mentored experience you will have at the bench.
