Intersections Science Fellows Symposium
The Intersections Science Fellows Symposium is a multi-institutional symposium organized to showcase the work of, and to network with, visionary mid- to late-stage postdoctoral researchers in broad areas of the biological sciences (including genetics, genomics, developmental biology, cell biology, biophysics & biochemistry, neuroscience, immunobiology, microbiology, computational biology, quantitative biology) with the following goals:
- To highlight postdoctoral researchers’ scientific contributions in the broad areas of biological research.
- Provide meaningful mentorship through workshops, feedback, and direct access from established faculty at participating institutions (before, during, and after the symposium).
- Provide a network for visionary early-career scientists selected as Fellows, including those who belong to groups that have been historically underrepresented in biological sciences academic ranks, and an opportunity to meet, connect, and elevate each other and their work (underrepresentation include: Blacks or African Americans, Hispanics or Latinos, American Indians or Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders, those with disabilities, are from low socioeconomic backgrounds*, women, or who identify as LGBTQ+).
- Connect outstanding Fellows with top institutions interested in hiring future faculty.
