> Dear Colleague,
>
> We would like to tell you about an exciting postdoctoral training 
> program that is in place at Tufts University in Boston, Massachusetts, 
> and hope that you will pass information about this opportunity on to 
> your graduate students.  Thisprogram, called TEACRS (Training in 
> Education and Critical Research Skills), is funded by the IRACDA 
> mechanism of NIH-GMS.
>
> TEACRS is designed to prepare talented scientists for successful 
> academic careers in biomedical research. Trainees spend on average 75% 
> of their time conductingbench research and 25% of their time in career 
> development activities that will help them manage the multiple demands 
> of a faculty position. Teaching skills are developed through programs 
> involving mentored classroom assignments at minority-serving 
> institutions in the Boston area.  The training is supplemented by 
> workshops and seminars on teaching methods, career opportunities in 
> academia, and essential skills such as grant writing, mentoring, lab 
> management, and scientific presentations. The training components are 
> sequenced to allow trainees to balance the activities and tobuild on 
> previous experiences.  TEACRS fellows receive up to four years of 
> salary support and a yearly travel and supply allowance.
>
> The application deadline for positions beginning in the fall of 2013 
> is March 1.  However, later applications will be considered if 
> positions are available.  Applicants must be U.S. citizens or 
> permanent residents at the time of their appointment to the program 
> and need to identify a Tufts faculty member who is willing to serve as 
> their research mentor.  Commitment to the goals of the program, strong 
> academic and research credentials, and an interest in teaching and 
> mentoring will be important criteria used in the selection process. 
>  For additional information on the TEACRS program and application 
> procedures, please visit our website at
