HMS Program in Graduate Education
Open Curriculum Fellow Positions
Harvard Medical School (HMS) invites motivated early-career scientists interested in careers in education to apply for a three-year fellowship within the HMS Curriculum Fellows Program. Curriculum Fellows (CFs) have diverse academic roles and professional identities, but our work is united by the core beliefs that effective teaching is evidence-based and all students deserve equal opportunities to learn. CFs work closely with members of the HMS faculty and administration to develop, deploy, support, and evaluate evidence-based graduate biomedical education and training. Fellows have gone on to careers as teaching faculty, directors of education, leaders within centers for teaching and learning, discipline-based educational researchers, and higher education administrators.
As a fellow, the majority of your time is spent serving the curricular and programmatic goals of the specific academic department or graduate training program that hires you (see above for links to current openings). This includes opportunities to create curricular and para-curricular programming for biomedical graduate students across the HMS Program in Graduate Education and to apply and evaluate evidence-based teaching practices. A variety of highly individualized professional development opportunities will help you identify your desired career path and develop the skills and experiences you will need to achieve it. All fellows contribute to the HMS community by attending and presenting in workshops, an education journal club, and pedagogy-focused seminars.
The CFP values a diversity of academic experiences and welcomes applicants from all graduate and postdoctoral institutions. The fellowship is intended for early-career scientist-educators. Applicants should be recent graduates or postdocs with a PhD in a scientific field that prepares you to develop graduate-level curricula specific to the hiring program or department. If you are a current graduate student and expect to receive your degree prior to the start of the fellowship term, you are welcome to apply. A strong interest in scientific teaching and training will be essential for your success, but significant independent teaching is not required. We provide up to $1000 to support your relocation to Boston.
