ASERT: Building Diversity and Excellence in the BioMedical Workforce

The Academic Science Education and Research Training (ASERT) program for postdoctoral fellows provides three years of support to fellows wishing to achieve excellence as both educators and research scientists in biology, bioengineering, and biomedical sciences. ASERT capitalizes on the outstanding interdisciplinary research opportunities and internationally recognized educational resources at The University of New Mexico. Trainees enhance job competitiveness by developing an individualized learning plan that allows completion of courses or training tailored to their career goals as well as hands-on teaching experience with outstanding education mentors at partner minority-serving institutions across the state of New Mexico (CNMNMSU, and SIPI).

The University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center postdoctoral fellows who are not in the ASERT-IRACDA program may participate in ASERT with agreement of their research mentors. In such cases, fellows may gain teaching experience through numerous opportunities at The University of New Mexico. Read more about our ASERT-UNM fellows.

For further information, please review our brochure or contact Dr. Angela Wandinger-Ness or Dr. Sherry Rogers.
