Are you interested in designing and leading programs that improve the diversity of the health and science workforce? Do you want to advance scholarly understanding of interventions that make academic environments more inclusive? Are you creative, proactive, a good communicator and teammate, with a strong work ethic? Do you want to join a team where you will be supported to grow your skills and make important contributions? If so, you are a perfect fit for our team!

The Yale Ciencia Initiative (YCI) is dedicated to expanding access to scientific knowledge, mentoring networks, and careers among communities or populations historically underrepresented in the scientific enterprise. The Research Associate will work with the YCI Director to lead projects to promote diversity, professional development, and career success among trainees in the biomedical sciences. The Research Associate will also supervise interns; contribute to data collection and analyses, progress reports, presentations, and scholarly publications; and help identify and pursue funding opportunities.

Specifically, the Research Associate will lead the PhD and MD/PhD tracks of the Yale Program to Advance Training of Health and Sciences (PATHS). The Research Associate will be responsible for identifying, inviting, and scheduling speakers, mentors, and instructors; overseeing the application review and onboarding processes; coordinating with volunteer mentors; and planning curricular content in collaboration with other program staff.

The Research Associate will also lead the development of curricula for the Yale Ciencia Academy (YCA), a federally funded project that promotes the professional development and career success of scientists from diverse backgrounds at the PhD-level and into the postdoctoral transition. The Research Associate will be responsible for assisting in the development of YCA video training modules and leading an accompanying training program for research advisors.

The ideal candidate will have direct experience with graduate training (through an MS or PhD degree) and have paid or volunteer experience designing and leading diversity training programs. This is a great position for recent graduates looking to transition to a career directing academic programs.
