Events sponsored by RUA focus on the advancement of underrepresented minorities (URM) doctoral candidates, postdoctoral scholars and early-career faculty in the Mathematical, Physical, and Environmental Sciences, and Engineering (MPESE) disciplines.
RUA Events and Professional Development
The Research University Alliance employs multiple participant-focused interventions to facilitate the advancement of URM doctoral candidates, postdoctoral scholars and early-career faculty in MPESE disciplines: a doctoral candidate and postdoctoral scholar research exchange across partnering institutions; an on-line portal to facilitate placement and hiring of postdoctoral scholars; a faculty advancement initiative for postdoctoral scholars transitioning into early-career faculty positions; and a suite of academic community-building activities to enhance faculty career pathways, such as targeted professional development, cohort building and network development.
