The Department of Biology and the NSF NRT Expand Program at the University of Virginia is soliciting applications to the UVA Rising Scholars Postdoctoral Fellowship Program. We seek to recruit a cluster of interdisciplinary life science scholars who are interested in broad questions in biology. Successful applicants will have interests that fit within the expertise that is represented in our Department, which includes strengths in developmental and cell biology. We seek Fellows who aspire to a tenure-track faculty position and who would benefit from the mentored professional development opportunity provided by our EXPAND Program.
These positions are designed to support under-represented scholars and are part of an ongoing commitment to diversify our programs, the professoriate and the research workforce, led by the College and Graduate School of Arts & Sciences at UVA. Interested individuals should contact potential research mentors in the Biology Department https://bio.as.virginia.edu/; for more information on EXPAND see https://expand.virginia.edu/ ; and for questions contact Deborah Roach, Chair of Biology email@example.com. Applications may be initiated at https://graduate.as.virginia.edu/rising-scholars and review will begin April 12, 2021.
