The UNC SOM Rising Star Program's main goal is to increase diversity among faculty members in the basic sciences, with a specific focus on groups historically minoritized in the basic sciencesThe program seeks to accomplish this by training postdoctoral fellows from underrepresented groups in the faculty interview process.
The mission behind this program is to:
  • Increase diversity across faculty positions in the basic sciences
  • Generate a pool of competitive applicants for UNC faculty positions
  • Engage UNC faculty in recruitment efforts and provide education to increase diversity and improve the interview experience of historically minoritized faculty candidates.
Join us as a panel of three Department Chairs from the UNC School of Medicine describe what they are looking for when attending Faculty Job Talks and Chalk Talks. There will be an opportunity to submit questions, which will allow attendees to get pointers on preparing effective Job and Chalk Talks.
