The Teaching Academy

The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs, the Professional Development and Career Office, and the Teaching Academy have partnered to create training opportunities on the East Baltimore Campus. Beginning in the Fall of 2016, seven individual training sessions and workshops will be held. Fellows interested in learning about teaching in colleges and universities should attend these workshops and participate in other offerings by the Teaching Academy. Fellows should also seek direct teaching experience by participating the Collaborative Teaching Fellows Program, managed by the Professional Development and Career Office. Click here to learn more and see scheduled events.


Partnering Toward Discovery Lecture Series

Sponsored by Dr. Antony Rosen, Vice Dean of Research, Dr. Roy Ziegelstein, Vice Dean of Education, and Dr. Martha Zeiger, Associate Dean of Postdoctoral Affairs, the Partnering Toward Discovery Lecture Series showcases the collaboration between clinical and basic science research.

Mini-Internship Opportunities

This office has created a program that provides interested fellows with "mini-internships" in offices located within Johns Hopkins University. These internships are designed with the busy postdoctoral fellow in mind. They require a relatively small time commitment, wherein the fellow completes a small task-based project. This allows the fellow to network in a career field of interest and have a completed work product--giving the fellow invaluable perspective and experience in a career field of choice. Click here to view current openings.
