The Molecular Biology Information Service (MBIS) of the Health Science Library System (HSLS) and the Postdoctoral Career Development Office are pleased to announce a new teaching opportunity for biomedical postdocs at the University of Pittsburgh.

Modeled after the MBIS workshops, postdoc instructors will be encouraged to teach a 1-2 hour workshop to a class of no more than 24 attendees. The specific topic will be up to the discretion of the postdoc, but must be a “how to” style talk rather than a seminar. The MBIS will work with postdocs to create a workshop that is both a positive teaching experience and instructive to attendees.

Please note that the topic can be ANYTHING related to health sciences, not specifically molecular biology or bioinformatics.

All postdoc instructors will receive feedback, a letter of acknowledgement, and optional videotaping of their session. Please take advantage of this exciting opportunity to add more teaching experience to your CV. We hope to start these “postdoc talks” this summer if there is sufficient interest.
