Committees

Purpose:

The primary mission of this committee is to improve the postdoctoral experience at Yale through the development and promotion of sound postdoctoral mentoring practices. The committee also serves as a valuable resource to advise my office on postdoctoral training, career development, and other factors that have the potential to enhance postdoctoral life at the University.  I am encouraged by the progress the committee has made since it was first convened, and look forward to it continuing this important work during the upcoming year.

Purpose:

In the model of other academic executive committees at Yale, this group will provide valuable perspectives on a range of topics to do with ISPS’s strategic direction; program development; academic partnerships; budget; and other matters. The committee serves as an advisory council that can bring very specific recommendations to our attention, but does not set policy. Faculty oversight committees have the vital function of ensuring the scholarly integrity of all programs and activities that bear the Yale name. We have conceived this committee’s membership to be broadly reflective of Yale’s education and research mission, and I am grateful to you for considering this additional but important task. If you accept this invitation, Jacob will be contacting you to schedule the initial meeting soon.
