The UNC School of Medicine is part of a National Institutes of Health Diversity Program Consortium effort to identify best mentoring practices for scientists who are underrepresented in biomedical research.
The PROMISE Study, Peer group Research On Mentoring Scientists underrepresented in biomedical research, is seeking postdoctoral fellows who hold MD, PhD, MD/PhD or DO degrees and who identify as being from a racially or ethnically underrepresented group, including as South Asian, or as multiracial. Participants should be engaged in biomedical research, including research on the biological/behavioral processes that advance the diagnosis, treatment and/or prevention of disease, and must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents.
The goal of the PROMISE study is to enhance scholarly output of scientists underrepresented in biomedical research. Participants can earn up to $500.
UNC is part of a national effort, funded by the National Institutes of Health Diversity Program Consortium to identify best mentoring practices for scientists underrepresented 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 senior underrepresented biomedical researchers.
