Junior Faculty Biomedical Research Association Presented by Jeffrey M. Lyness, MD, FAC PsychSenior Associate Dean for Academic Affairs Professor of Psychiatry and Neurology
The URMC has recently updated the path to promotion to Associate Professor. Dr. Lyness will discuss this process, the factors that are currently important for promotion decisions and will describe how external funding is viewed in the context of promotion to Associate Professor. Many junior faculty gain mentored funding (e.g., K awards) but face challenges gaining independence and continual funding. We will hear from Dr. Lyness how these challenges are viewed and learn how our institution factors them in the promotions process. The presentation will be followed by a question-and-answer period.
