Under-Represented Minority Postdoc Recruitment Day, Apr. 14-16

OHSU is accepting applications for the first URM postdoc recruitment day travel fellowship, which provides travel and all associated costs of a visit to OHSU April 14-16. We are seeking candidates who are considered under-represented in biomedical science according to NIH and who may be considering a postdoctoral appointment at OHSU.

Participants will be introduced to areas of scientific strength at OHSU, meet with potential mentors and future colleagues, and receive information about on-campus activities and life in the greater Portland area. This program is a direct result of the importance that OHSU places on increasing the diversity of its scientists at all ranks.

Candidates may apply to the program now through Feb. 1, 2016. Applications must include a statement of interest naming at least one potential mentor, as well as a biosketch and a letter of recommendation from your current mentor. Successful candidates will be eligible for positions on several NIH-sponsored training grants as well as the OHSU Fellowship in Diversity and Inclusion. This program is for postdocs who are T-32 eligible: You must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident. Applications are due February 1, 2016 and must be submitted via the Competition Application Portal (CAP).
