How it works

Advanced graduate students and postdocs begin by creating a postdoc profile. Faculty members and research scientists interested in talking to potential postdocs or advertise an open position create a research group profile from which they can post postdoc job openings. Automated matches are made based on shared areas of interest between postdoc profiles and available positions and research group profile.

For the first time, nine of the nation’s most prominent universities are engaging in joint mentorship, scientific collaboration, career development and guidance of advanced PhD students and postdoctoral fellows.

RUA focuses on the advancement of underrepresented minority graduate and postdoctoral scholars that are pursuing academic careers in mathematical, physical, and environmental sciences, and engineering. RUA’s goal is to diversify the future professoriate nationally by creating robust professional development, mentoring, and networking opportunities.
