The Ford Foundation seeks to increase the diversity of the nation’s college and university faculties by increasing their ethnic and racial diversity, maximize the educational benefits of diversity, and increase the number of professors who can and will use diversity as a resource for enriching the education of all students. Three types of awards are available in this application cycle: predoctoral awards, dissertation awards, and postdoctoral awards. Awards are made for study in research-based PhD programs. Eligibility is limited to U.S. citizens, nationals, permanent residents, and those with DACA status or who continue to meet guidelines for DACA. Applicants should demonstrate superior academic achievement and be committed to a career in teaching and research at the college or university level in the U.S.
The National Science foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program (NSF GRFP) provides three years of financial support to applicants pursuing full-time, research-based master’s and doctoral degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) or in STEM education. Recipients receive a $34,000 annual stipend and $12,000 education allowance from NSF, plus the UW–Madison Graduate School contributes toward fringe benefits. Students who have completed no more than one academic year of full-time graduate study may apply, though graduate students are limited to only one GRFP application, submitted either in the first year or second year of graduate school.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Maximizing Opportunities for Scientific and Academic Independent Careers (MOSAIC) program is designed to facilitate the transition of promising postdocs from diverse backgrounds into independent, research-intensive faculty careers. The program has two components: a postdoctoral career transition award to promote diversity (K99/R00), and a cohort-based mentoring and career development program that supports the scholars. The MOSAIC K99/R00 program supports early career scientists with demonstrated and compelling commitments and contributions to enhancing diversity in the biomedical sciences. MOSAIC scholars come from diverse scientific backgrounds, and 75% are from racial/ethnic groups that are underrepresented in the biomedical sciences. In addition to the postdoctoral transition award, MOSAIC scholars become members of scientific cohorts and participate in mentoring, networking, and professional development activities. NIH accepts applications for the MOSAIC K99/R00 award three times per year, and the next application receipt date is 10/12.
The CRI Irvington Postdoctoral Fellowship Program provides critical financial support and continued career training to the most promising young scientists in basic and tumor immunology as part of our lifesaving work in cancer immunotherapy research.
The Cancer Research Institute recognizes that getting to the next great breakthrough in cancer treatment will require continued investment in fundamental research and training. CRI therefore invites postdoctoral fellows working in both fundamental immunology and tumor immunology to apply for funding.
Applications will be accepted through Monday, September 12th. APPLY HERE!
Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to learn about THREE postdoctoral programs in the Chicagoland area and the cutting-edge research happening at each institution. More than 150 faculty members from the three institutions have signed-up to participate in the Initiative! This is a collaborative initiative to improve diversity and inclusion at the three largest research universities in the Chicago area, with the goal of addressing the “pipeline” challenge in academia for historically marginalized graduate students and postdocs, including individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic backgrounds, who have disabilities, who identify as LGBTQIA+, who are veterans, or who were first-generation college students or Pell-eligible. Selected participants will learn about postdoctoral programs in the Chicagoland area, how to find postdoctoral opportunities, how to apply for postdoctoral positions, and how to maximize your postdoctoral experiences. Following these two days of programming, participants will conduct informational interviews with matched faculty members through November 4th. Questions? Please visit our website or email us at: email@example.com

Due 10/1.
This fall the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the Carver College of Medicine at the University of Iowa will open a search to hire a tenure track Assistant Professor. We are looking for a colleague that broadly interfaces with the field of biochemistry and aligns with research within the department. Research interests within the department include computational modeling and structural analysis, regulation of gene expression, protein structure and function, cell signaling, metabolism, DNA replication and repair, and cell and nuclear dynamics.
We are especially interested in applicants that may benefit from existing expertise within the department as they build their independent research program. The current faculty in our department have a history of interaction within and outside the department and have been leaders in establishing shared research facilities at the University of Iowa. We recognize that establishing a vibrant research program requires financial resources and generous start-up funding is available.
The University of Iowa, in Iowa City, Iowa is in eastern Iowa on the banks of the Iowa River. The University and the city provide an accessible and exceptional cultural environment. The University and the department are determined to facilitate a diverse, supportive environment.
