TEACRS IRACDA Postdoctoral Program
TEACRS Program Website
The Training in Education and Critical Research Skills (TEACRS) Program trains the academic biomedical research faculty of the future and enriches opportunities in biomedical education for minority serving institutions. By providing high quality research experiences, coupled with career development skills, this program prepares the most talented young scientists for academic careers.
TEACRS is funded by the IRACDA program of NIH/NIGMS. TEACRS trainees are appointed for a three year training period, during which they are supported by a stipend and an annual travel allowance.
Through a specially-tailored mentoring program, TEACRS trainees complete our program ready to manage a successful research program, teach and balance the multi-faceted demands inherent in a career as an academic scientist. Because our trainees carry out their mentored teaching at minority serving undergraduate institutions, our program helps these institutions provide new, innovative science courses. We expect that our trainees will be among the leading academic scientists of the next generation.
