The virtual 2-day event for prospective postdocs hosted by the Initiative will take place October 19-20, 2023! Applications for prospective postdocs to participate in the Initiative will open in August.

Recruiting Diverse Populations
Our goals are to 1) focus on addressing the “pipeline” challenge in STEM for historically marginalized graduate students and postdocs; and 2) to recruit and retain individuals from groups that have traditionally been underrepresented in academia and the sciences, including individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic backgrounds, who have disabilities, who identify as LGBTQIA+, who are veterans, who have obtained a PhD as a second career, or who were first-generation college students or Pell-eligible.
About the Event
Selected candidates will be invited to participate in a 2-day virtual event on October 19-20, 2023. Participants will also be matched with faculty volunteers for virtual informational interviews, which will take place October 19-November 3, 2023.
