This fall BioSci program will be offering mentored teaching opportunities for postdocs based on the following criteria:
- BioSci is unable to fill all of the BioSci GTA slots.
- The postdoc has expressed interest in teaching and wishes to build a teaching portfolio.
- The postdoc’s research mentor has agreed to release the postdoc from 20 hours of research for the length of the teaching assignment.
- The postdoc can be matched to an appropriate faculty mentor who agrees to take on mentoring responsibilities for that postdoc.
This is NOT intended to serve as a bridge program for postdocs who lack funding. The postdoc must continue to work in the research lab ½ time for the length of the teaching assignment. BioSci will cover ½ of the postdocs salary at the same rate as their research salary for the length of the teaching assignment.
The postdoc will be expected to take on all the responsibilities of a typical GTA for the course as well as some additional teaching responsibilities aimed at building their teaching credentials through teaching in the course.
If you have questions about the mentored postdoctoral teaching experience in BioSci, please contact Jon Stoltzfus, the BioSci Program Director (firstname.lastname@example.org).
