The Clinical and Translational Science Institute has developed a free, self-paced, online, professional development course designed to prepare faculty from a range of disciplines to be effective research mentors for junior faculty, post-doctoral fellows, and graduate students.
Brown University offers an institutional membership to affiliated faculty and staff. To login and access resources, click "Join NCFDD" and indicate your institutional affiliation. From there, users will be prompted to create a profile to sign in. Brown faculty can also participate (at a discounted rate) for various faculty development in-person workshops that NCFDD administers.
The original aims of the group are to help build community among faculty of color and to establish sources of mentoring and professional development to meet the specific needs of senior, junior, and non-tenure track faculty of color as well as post-doctoral fellows of color at Brown. This website is meant to be a resource to provide information about the FOC Network and its programming, as well as share information about additional campus and community events and resources.
Every young scientist needs some help along the way: iBiology offers some excellent guidance from senior scientists who have walked in their shoes.
