Postdoctoral Training Scholar to Faculty Pathway Program

Scholar to Faculty Pathway Program

The Scholar to Faculty Pathway Program aims to increase the number of clinical and basic science researchers from underrepresented communities in science who attain faculty positions at NYU Grossman School of Medicine. The program is part of efforts to foster an academic culture that’s as diverse and inclusive as New York City—a place where people from different backgrounds and disciplines can collaborate with one another, achieve educational and career milestones, and discover new and innovative ways to improve healthcare.

Senior postdoctoral fellows who are selected for this program receive culturally relevant mentoring and support, additional funding, and opportunities to connect with a cohort to support their transition from being a postdoctoral fellow to becoming a faculty member. The goal of the program is to prepare participants to become successful principal investigators (PI). Those who successfully complete the program have a promising opportunity to be considered for a faculty position at NYU Grossman School of Medicine.

Benefits available to participants in the Scholar to Faculty Pathway Program include additional compensation, support for relocation, rental and childcare subsidies, funding to attend meetings and conferences, tailored professional development, connection to racially and ethnically diverse faculty from medical schools across the country, and career coaching. This program is a partnership between the postdoctoral affairs team and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at NYU Langone.
