Postdoc applicants must now apply with the NIH Fi2 funding mechanism, and all applications must be submitted via grants.gov.

Faculty Positions: Options Beyond the Traditional
This two-part seminar will be led by Dr. Sydella Blatch. Dr. Blatch was an associate professor of biology at a primarily undergraduate institution and recently transitioned to a career in science administration, now working in the NIAID intramural training office.
As grad students and postdocs, we get a lot of exposure to research-based faculty positions, but what other kinds of faculty jobs are out there? Come to one or both parts of this seminar to learn about academic faculty positions that vary based on their emphasis in teaching, research, and institutional service.
Part I (60 min): Find out what it can be like for faculty at mid-sized and small universities, liberal arts and community colleges, and other kinds of faculty appointments at research-intensive universities such as lecturers and research professors.
Part II (30 min): Learn what kinds of experience and skills in teaching, research, and service make applicants competitive for these types of faculty positions. Discover what you can work on now and ways to convey your skills in the job application.
Please contact Dr. Erin Walsh (email@example.com) if you plan to attend.
