Overview:

The REBUILD Detroit Program, a consortium of Marygrove College, University of Detroit Mercy, Wayne State University and Wayne County Community College District, is seeking a postdoctoral teaching fellow (PTF) in environmental or analytical Chemistry to support the implementation of a $21.2 M five-year grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The goal of the REBUILD Detroit Program is to transform undergraduate education at the four member institutions to establish Detroit as a center for biomedical research training for underrepresented undergraduate students.

The PTF will collaborate with consortium faculty, staff, and undergraduate students to design a common 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 based on the Research Coordination Network (RCN) model. For more information, see www.rebuildetroit.org.

We seek a postdoctoral candidate with a strong interest in undergraduate teaching and research. The PTF will work closely with faculty mentors across the four 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, and participating in various capacities in summer enrichment programs.

Program Objectives:

It is expected that this role in the REBUILD Detroit Program will provide opportunities to significantly deepen your understanding of and skills in science teaching in a higher education environment including community colleges, regional or state colleges, and primarily undergraduate institutions (PUIs). Over the course of this two-year fulltime fellowship, the PTF will design learning experiences, assessments, and laboratory exercises; engage in research activities with students; guide student learning communities; teach; meet with mentors; and participate in professional development workshops and conferences. In addition to gaining the above experiences, the PTF will develop a teaching portfolio to prepare for future positions with a strong emphasis in undergraduate STEM education. It is also expected that the PTF will actively seek a full-time faculty position during the second year of their fellowship.

Eligibility:

The REBUILDETROIT Program Postdoctoral teaching fellowships are open to postdoctoral scientists with an interest in undergraduate STEM education (a potential to blend their research with undergraduate 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 Chemistry RCN model:

  • Chemistry: environmental and analytical chemistry

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

The successful candidate will be expected to select a research mentor at Wayne State University or University of Detroit Mercy to complement their pedagogical training.

To be eligible for the fellowship, applicants must be: 1) be citizens, nationals, 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 2009 and before September 2015.

This is a 2-year NIH fellowship funded at a competitive 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
