The Academic Science Education and Research Training (ASERT) IRACDA program at the University of New Mexico is seeking applications from prospective and PhD graduates recent (within 2 years) looking for a postdoctoral experience that supports an outstanding dual training in teaching and research. Successful applicants will receive two years of support to complete research projects (75% time) in biology, bioengineering or biomedical sciences and teach at affiliated minority serving institutions (25% time). A third year of funding will be contingent on successful program renewal. The ASERT Program offers opportunities to train with over 50 research and education mentors that represent a diverse range of interests and expertise. Fellows are supported through a NIGMS K12 IRACDA grant that is part of a nationwide network spanning 18 institutions. The ASERT Program and the annual meetings with the IRACDA network offer exceptional opportunities to foster the next generation of excellence in academia. For best consideration for the ASERT Postdoctoral Fellowship, apply online as soon as possible to begin in September 2012.
