Divisions of Biological and Physical Sciences Research Communications Program

The Divisions of Biological and Physical Sciences, with the generous support of the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, have begun a joint two-year effort to improve the ability of faculty members, postdoctoral fellows and other researchers on campus to communicate their work to the public.

More information on the program can be found here.

Details on two workshops scheduled for June, as well as registration for faculty and postdoctoral researchers for the three-day Talking Research workshop, can be found here. We encourage you to participate in this program and, more importantly, to take the time to communicate the value and importance of your work at UC San Diego to the public.

Postdoctoral Fellowship Opportunities – Stanford Molecular Imaging Scholars (SMIS) Program

The Stanford Molecular Imaging Scholars (SMIS) Program is currently recruiting postdoctoral fellows.

The Stanford Molecular Imaging Scholars (SMIS) program is an integrated, three-year cross-disciplinary postdoctoral training program at Stanford University that brings together 33 faculty mentors from 14 departments in the Schools of Medicine, Engineering, and Humanities and Sciences. Molecular imaging, the non-invasive monitoring of specific molecular and biochemical processes in living organisms, continues to expand its applications in the detection and management of cancer. SMIS faculty mentors provide a diverse training environment spanning biology, physics, mathematics, biocomputation/biomedical informatics, engineering, chemistry, biochemistry, cancer biology, immunology, and medical sciences. The centerpiece of the SMIS program is the opportunity for trainees (PhD or MD with an emphasis on PhD) to conduct innovative molecular imaging research that is co-mentored by faculty in complementary disciplines. SMIS trainees also engage in specialized coursework, seminars, national conferences, clinical rounds, including ethics training and the responsible conduct of research. The three-year program culminates with the preparation and review of a mock NIH grant proposal, in support of trainee transition to an independent career in cancer molecular imaging.

1. Candidate must have an MD or PhD degree
2. Candidate must be a US citizen, or a non-citizen national, or must have been lawfully admitted for permanent residence and possess an Alien Registration Card (1-151 or 1-551) or some other verification of legal admission as a permanent resident.
