Attention: Enrolled GT 4th/5th Ph.D. candidate or Post-doc in the areas of Mathematics, Physical and Environmental Sciences, and Engineering (MPESE)
I am one of the Georgia Tech Primary Investigators (PIs) for the NSF Alliances for Graduate Education and the Professoriate (AGEP) Research University Alliance (RUA) grant aimed at diversifying the professoriate of the future, focused on developing and operationalizing interventions to recruit, support, and advance postdocs from backgrounds historically underrepresented in academia in the Mathematics, Physical Sciences, Earth Sciences, and Engineering fields. The 9 institutions in this alliance are Berkeley, CalTech, Georgia Tech, Harvard, Michigan, Stanford, Texas, UCLA, and Washington, which together constitute over 27% of postdocs in these fields.
