As the current NICHD Basic Sciences Institutes and Centers (IC) Representative, I represent NICHD postdoctoral fellows at the NIH Fellows Committee (FelCom) meeting every month and share the latest news with you here. Do you have a concern or question that you want brought up at the next meeting? Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Dear NICHD fellows,
Are you looking to improve your “soft” skills, gain leadership experience, or find FAES (Foundation for the Advanced Education in the Sciences) teaching opportunities? Make sure to subscribe to the FELLOW-L listserv to learn about the latest committee openings and the FAES courses in need of instructors. Go to list.nih.gov, login or create an account, search for FELLOW-L, and request to subscribe. You can also use this website to subscribe to Scientific Interest Groups that interest you.
Are you a visiting fellow trying to adjust to the United States and looking to get involved in the postdoctoral community or an NIH-wide committee? In addition to the FELLOW-L listserv, you can join the Visiting Fellows Committee (VFC). Subscribe to the VISITINGFELLOWS listserv to learn more about this active committee, follow their social events, and to join. Follow the steps above for navigating list.nih.gov, and search for VISITINGFELLOWS.
As a general reminder, you can always contact me (email@example.com) to learn more about various NIH-wide committees and how your participation can enhance your training.
