The American Society for Cell Biology has introduced the Mentorship in Active Learning and Teaching (MALT) program to promote the formation of long-term mentorships that can spread the Vision and Change recommendations to new institutions while simultaneously providing postdocs and faculty with the opportunity to gain invaluable teaching experience. The ASCB has set up databases for mentors and mentees at http://ascb.org/mentoring-in-active-learning-and-teaching-malt/ to help the society's Education Committee match prospective mentors and menses by geography, common interest, or other factors. We also offer a limited number of fellowships that can provide financial support for travel expenses related to as mentorship.
We would love it if members of the PULSE community would consider becoming mentors in this initiative! We have an immediate need for mentors in places like San Francisco, Seattle, Dallas/Fort Worth, and Washington, DC, but are happy to take all interested potential mentors to set up in-person or virtual mentorships. Please visit the above link and join our database to get involved.
Please email Mike Wolyniak at email@example.com with any questions you may have about MALT or becoming involved. Thank you for your consideration of this exciting initiative!
