Harvard Medical School (HMS) seeks applications from early-career science educators interested in a threeyear
fellowship within the HMS Curriculum Fellows Program (https://curriculumfellows.hms.harvard.edu).
Curriculum Fellows work closely with committed members of the HMS faculty and administration to
develop, deploy, and evaluate evidence-based improvements in graduate biomedical education. Fellows
have gone on to careers as faculty at teaching-focused undergraduate institutions, leaders in centers for
teaching and learning, discipline-based educational researchers, and administrators of higher education.

The fellowship period is spent in service of the curricular and programmatic goals of a specific sponsoring
department or graduate training program, the details of which are determined in collaboration with the
appropriate departmental/programmatic leadership. As part of the Curriculum Fellows Program, fellows
are also provided with oversight and mentorship focused on the creation of aligned curricular and paracurricular
programming for graduate training, the application of evidence-based teaching practices, and
highly individualized professional development. Fellows are also expected to contribute to the HMS
community of graduate biomedical educators by attending and presenting at workshops, an education
journal club, and pedagogy-focused seminars. Collaborations to improve training across the HMS Program
in Graduate Education are encouraged and opportunities may exist to teach undergraduate courses and/or
conduct discipline-based educational research (DBER) — in both cases either in- or outside the scope of
the fellows’ primary service.

Suitable candidates will have a PhD in a scientific field relevant to the service mission of the hiring program
or department (see below) or in science education. Demonstrated interest and experience in scientific
teaching, preferably at the graduate or undergraduate level, is required. The fellowship is intended for earlycareer
scientist-educators. Therefore, applications from candidates with more than 5 years of postdoctoral
research or teaching experience are discouraged. Fellows are appointed as research associates, with
promotion to the rank of Lecturer possible based on experience and performance.

Interested candidates should email the following as a single PDF document to Dr. Bradley Coleman, Co-
Director of the HMS Curriculum Fellows Program, c/o Ms. Naima Abdullahi
(naima_abdullahi@hms.harvard.edu): (1) a letter of application that identifies the specific program or
programs to which you are applying, including your specific interest in and qualifications for the position,
(2) a curriculum vitae, and (3) a statement of teaching philosophy. Please also include the names and contact
information of three references, who will be contacted during the review process. Applications will be
reviewed on a rolling basis, starting immediately. For full consideration, you must submit a complete set of
materials no later than June 11th. 2018 fellows are expected to begin the program by early- to mid-summer
in Boston, MA.

We are an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for
employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected
veteran status, gender identity, sexual orientation, pregnancy and pregnancy-related conditions or any
