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 sciences. The 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 Ms. Blakey, Dr. Freeman, and Dr. Rodriguez-Romaguera will provide tips for applying to the UNC SOM Rising Star Program to Increase Faculty Diversity. Attendees will get a unique perspective on how to make their applications to the Rising Star Program stand out.
