All students, faculty and staff from all schools are encouraged to submit artwork of any medium to the TWENTY-THIRD annual Boston University Medical School gallery for the arts. “Art Days” was begun by then Dean Chobanian to foster the support and growth of the creative arts at BUMC. It has been very successful and has shown work from students, faculty and staff and family members. The exhibition is mounted by the Creative Arts Society.
NEW FACET–KEYWORD: This is the second year of a university-wide arts initiative with an annual Keyword to be used as a thematic organizer for various courses and events. The Keyword for this year is RESILIENCE. (“Resilience is marked by flexibility, elasticity, and vivacity in the face of adversity.” See http://www.bu.edu/cfa/about/initiatives/keyword/.) Therefore, there may be a special section at Art Days for display of works addressing Resilience. However, it is also fine to submit work not related to the Keyword.
To be placed on the “submit list” or if you have any questions please contact:
Dr. Keith Tornheim 8-8296 email: email@example.com

Seeding Postdoctoral Innovators in Research and Education (SPIRE)
Applications due: February 1, 2013
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-CH) and collaborating minority serving institutions in the state of North Carolina are seeking outstanding candidates for a unique NIH-supported postdoctoral training fellowship. Seeding Postdoctoral Innovators in Research and Education (SPIRE) is designed for scientists interested in academic careers that emphasize both research and teaching. These multi-year fellowships will enable the postdocs to pursue independent, original research in one of over 100 UNC-CH laboratories representing diverse disciplines aligned with the mission on the National Institutes of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) and training in science education, instructional technology-supported learning, and professional skills.
The scholars receive mentored, practical classroom experience by training at our partner institutions and designing and teaching undergraduate courses. In addition, SPIRE’s collaborations enable scholars to contribute to achieving diversity in science professions. Each fellowship includes salary, health insurance, and participation in a Seminar on College Teaching, a grant writing initiative, and other professional development workshops. As a Community of Postdoctoral Scholars, SPIRE scholars administer a Distinguished Scholar seminar series for the larger scientific community.
Applicants can be either new Ph.D.s or postdocs with up to two years postgraduate training at the time of appointment. Underrepresented candidates, including those with disabilities, are strongly encouraged to apply. Salaries are commensurate with NIH guidelines for experience. Candidates should send a CV, a letter explaining their research and teaching interests and how the SPIRE program will help them to achieve their career goals, and three letters of reference to Dr. Brian Rybarczyk, SPIRE Coordinator, email@example.com. All application materials must be received by February 1, 2013 for fellowships beginning September 1, 2013. For further information about the SPIRE program and the application process, please visit our website at http://spire.unc.edu . UNC-CH is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer.
