Assistant Director, Center for Biomedical Career Development (cBCD) at University of Massachusetts Medical School. Housed in the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences (GSBS), the cBCD supports the career and professional development of our ~700 PhD and postdoctoral biomedical trainees at UMass Medical School. In addition to offering opt-in resources and services in the areas of career and professional skills development, a cornerstone of our approach is to work with faculty to integrate career development into the fabric of the core curriculum for predoctoral and postdoctoral training. With the support of grant funding, we test for short- and long-term impacts of our approach, and disseminate our findings to help advance the field of PhD career development. The Assistant Director will teach and direct elements of these core functions, facilitate program growth in strategic areas, meet with students 1-on-1 in career counseling appointments, and contribute to strategic planning, communications, and partnership development to further the mission and growth of the cBCD.
