The application for the 2022 Rising Stars in Engineering in Health Workshop, hosted jointly by Johns Hopkins Biomedical Engineering and Columbia University, is now open! Now in its third year, the Rising Stars in Engineering in Health Workshop aims to educate, train, and empower the next generation of leaders in academia at the intersection of engineering and the biomedical sciences.
The two-day, in-person, interactive workshop will take place on Friday-Saturday, November 18-19, 2022 on the Johns Hopkins Homewood campus in Baltimore, MD and will feature rapid-fire research talks, educational presentations, intensive workshops, mock interviews, and panel discussions with Columbia and Johns Hopkins faculty.
We welcome applicants from across the United States, including postdoctoral fellows, research scientists, and graduate students who are working at the intersection of engineering and the biomedical sciences and are one to two years away from applying for a faculty position. As both Johns Hopkins and Columbia Universities pursue excellence in engineering as applied to human health, our priority is to do so in an environment that embraces diversity, equity, and inclusion. With this in mind, we strongly encourage applicants from groups that are historically underrepresented in STEM disciplines.
Applicants must be doctoral students, postdoctoral fellows, or research scientists who plan to seek a faculty position in fields at the intersection of engineering and the biomedical sciences in the next one to two years (positions starting in fall 2023 or later).
From the applicant pool, twenty Rising Stars will be selected to participate as presenters and participants in the Workshop. All qualified applicants, whether they are selected as a Rising Star or not, will be invited to participate virtually in select educational portions of the Workshop.
Applicants should complete the application questions and submit the following materials as a single combined PDF file via the link below:
- Two-page academic statement, including a summary of your research interests, work to date, and goals for the future
- One-page diversity statement describing how past experiences have made you a diverse applicant and how you will apply that diverse perspective in your future research and teaching pursuits
Applicants are encouraged to submit their application as soon as possible and no later than August 19, 2022.
Successful applicants will be notified by October 1, 2022.
