Our office offers workshops on Responsible Conduct in Research, professional development, grant writing, as well as support for fellowship application writing. In addition, the Initiative to Maximize Student Development program at Brown offers a variety of training modules that have been specifically designed to address student gaps in knowledge or experience and build skills that may not be readily addressed in the classroom or laboratory. Please view the IMSD website for complete information on modules offered.
The Division of Biology and Medicine at Brown University is committed to increasing and supporting the diversity of its graduate and postdoctoral trainees, and encourages members of underrepresented minority groups and individuals with disabilities to apply for admission to its graduate programs and postdoctoral positions. Please take a moment to review the resources available within the division. Student veterans and current or prospective officer commissioning program participants may contact The Office of Student Veterans and Commissioning Programs to learn more about additional tools and resources available to them at Brown University.
Since graduate students are enrolled through the Graduate School, policies and procedures about the following can be found on their site:
