The REBUILD Detroit Program, a consortium of Marygrove College, University of Detroit Mercy, and Wayne State University, seeks three postdoctoral training fellows (PTFs). The $21.2 M five-year grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has funding to support three postdocs for training in teaching and research. The goal of the REBUILD Detroit Program is to transform undergraduate education at the three member institutions establishing Detroit as a center for biomedical research training for underrepresented undergraduate students.

The PTFs will collaborate with consortium faculty, staff, and undergraduate students to teach curriculum emphasizing mentored research among Detroit’s diverse student populations leading to accelerated pipelines into master’s and doctoral degrees to ensure students succeed in biomedical research careers. This common curriculum will include courses containing authentic research experiences based on the Research Coordination Network (RCN) model in the areas of biology, chemistry, and social/health sciences. For more information, see www.rebuildetroit.org.

We seek postdoctoral candidates with a strong interest in undergraduate teaching and research. PTFs will work closely with faculty mentors across the three institutions on: implementing innovative pedagogical strategies in courses based on the RCN model, facilitating a RCN learning community with graduate teaching fellows at each institution, engaging with undergraduate BUILD Scholars on joint research experiences, participating in various capacities in summer enrichment programs, as well as conduct discipline-specific research with a postdoctoral research mentor.

Program Objectives: It is expected that this role in the REBUILD Detroit Program will provide opportunities to:

  • deepen your understanding of and skills in science teaching in a higher education environment including, regional or state colleges, and primarily undergraduate institutions (PUIs).
  • acquire experience in the pedagogical use of Course-Based Undergraduate Research Experiences (CURES) in the undergraduate curriculum.
  • design learning experiences, assessments, and laboratory exercises; engage in research activities with students; guide student learning communities; teach using evidence-based methods; and participate in professional development workshops and conferences.
  • interact with two active mentors; a research mentor and a teaching mentor. Selection of the second mentor can be from a different discipline, same discipline, and or different institution.
  • develop a teaching portfolio to prepare for future positions with a strong emphasis in undergraduate STEM education.
  • publish pedagogical and/or scientific research results.

It is also expected that the PTF will actively seek a full-time faculty position in year two.

The REBUILDETROIT Program Postdoctoral training fellowships are open to postdoctoral scientists with an interest in undergraduate STEM education. Eligibility is not restricted to scientists in biomedical programs, but they should have previous research experience with the disciplinary content associated with one of the RCN models:

  • Chemistry: environmental and analytical chemistry
  • Biology: genomics, bioinformatics
  • Social/Health Sciences: socio-ecological mixed-methods to investigate health disparities

Applicants should have a commitment to excellence in undergraduate teaching as well as an active research agenda related to one of the RCN disciplines.

To be eligible for the fellowship, applicants must be: 1) U.S. citizens or permanent residents of the United States at the time of application; 2) received a doctoral degree (PhD or equivalent) in a STEM discipline (including social and behavioral sciences) no earlier than 2011 and before September 2017.

This is a 2-year fellowship funded by a NIH grant.

Application Process:
Complete applications must include the following items.

  1. A current curriculum vitae (CV) or resume
  2. An unofficial transcript of doctoral coursework
  3. Cover letter describing their professional background, including any prior teaching experience, and career goals
