Peer Mentoring Group Facilitators Needed!

UNC is part of a national effort, funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Diversity Program Consortium, to identify best mentoring practices for scientists underrepresented in biomedical research.

The PROMISE Study is seeking underrepresented (UR) Associate and Full Professors to serve as peer mentoring group facilitators. Facilitators should have experience mentoring postdoctoral fellows or early career faculty and have a history of funding for biomedical research (the study of the biological/behavioral processes that advance the diagnosis, treatment and/or prevention of disease).  

UNC is part of a national effort, funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Diversity Program Consortium to identify best mentoring practices for scientists’ underrepresented (UR) in biomedical research. This study will examine a peer group mentoring approach to enhance scholarly output and academic advancement of participants. Peer groups will meet twice per month for nine months. Sessions are focused on professional development and facilitated by two senior UR biomedical researchers.
