Faculty Sabbaticals

The CDP Center hosts an expense-paid sabbatical program for faculty who work at institutions serving underrepresented minority students or who are underrepresented minorities themselves. Two sabbatical positions are held in CDP-affiliated research groups in Harvard Medical School’s Department of Systems Biology and MIT’s Schools of Science, Engineering and Management. Funds are provided to cover salaries, research expenses and moving costs.

The goals of this program are to:

  1. Introduce faculty from community colleges and minority-serving institutions to the emerging field of systems biology
  2. Facilitate the introduction of new course materials in this area at the visitors’ home institutions
  3. Develop research collaborations between visiting faculty and CDP investigators to help jump-start independent research programs at the visitor’s home institutions

To date, four faculty members have participated in the program. Faculty are identified and selected based on their interest in systems biology education and/or research, and recommendations from their home institution.
