The UW Allies program serves graduate students and postdoctoral scholars in basic science labs at UW. Allies are faculty volunteers who provide trainees with support during conflict with mentors and lab mates, assistance in navigating institutional barriers to success, and connection with institutional and community services. Allies stand in solidarity with trainees, so they don’t have to face challenges alone. https://sites.uw.edu/uwallies/
The Department of Physiology and Biophysics is pleased to announce a new professional development program for postdoctoral scholars. This selective, two-year program provides monthly opportunities to learn the basic skills required for faculty in academia, including tackling unintended bias, mentoring, grant writing, budgeting for labs and small groups, and healthy approaches to dealing with stress. Postdoctoral scholars may apply at any time by contacting Sharona Gordon.
