PRT Program Overview

The Postdoctoral Research and Teaching (PRT) fellowship from the Department of Biology at IUPUI is an opportunity for highly qualified and motivated Ph.D. scientists to conduct research while also pursuing genuine teaching experiences.  Fellows will spend 80% of their time doing research in collaboration with a faculty mentor to build a strong publication record and an independent research program necessary for launching an academic career.  In addition, fellows will work with the campus Center for Teaching and Learning to develop modern pedagogical approaches to use while teaching in a variety of classroom settings within the department.  Upon completion of the fellowship trainees will possess both a competitive research and teaching portfolios.
