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.
