The Biology Scholars Program offers tools and resources to drive professional faculty into reforming and sustaining new teaching strategies in undergraduate science education.
The PPF program offers career preparation assistance to master’s, doctoral, and postdoctoral students by exposing them to faculty responsibilities as well as diverse classrooms in a variety of institutions.
Society for the Advancement of Biology Education Research (SABER)
SABER invites science faculty to learn new strategies to develop improved methods in Biology Education Research. Programs include development of BER training and faculty development programs as well as curriculum development
Project Kaleidoscope (PKAL) Summer Leadership Institute for STEM Faculty
The PKAL summer institute focuses on engaging early to mid-career STEM faculty to take part in projects geared towards transform STEM education in their classroom, department, and institutions.
National Academies Summer Institutes on Undergraduate Education
The summer institute engages faculty to engage in current research on scientific teaching, active learning, and assessment.
The goal of the CIRTL network is to improve the STEM learning of all students at every college and university, and thereby to increase the diversity in STEM fields and the STEM literacy of the nation
The objective of PFF at UCLA is to provide our postdoctoral and graduate students with the most relevant knowledge and skills for them to be successful in their job searches and their academic careers tenure process no matter what the balance between teaching and research in their chosen institution.
Graduate Students, Postdocs, and Colleagues:
CareerHub is a central location where UCLA graduate students and postdocs can find upcoming professional and career development events, resources, and opportunities across the campus. We encourage you to bookmark or subscribe to CareerHub to stay informed about upcoming opportunities. As this website is a new collaborative venture for the campus we expect to expand the features over the coming months.

The EnCorps STEM Teaching Fellowship – alternative pathway to (paid) teaching or volunteer tutoring
The EnCorps STEM Teachers Program Fellowship (www.encorps.org) is a way for science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) professionals to explore if teaching at the middle or high school level might be a potential career pathway. Choose from two programs: transition to teaching or volunteer tutoring. Currently there is a severe shortage of high-quality teachers and enduring gaps in STEM access for high-need students and communities. EnCorps transitions STEM professionals into teaching with opportunities to tutor or guest teach, professional development and training, scholarships for obtaining a teaching credential, and access to our network of schools. Find out more by joining one of our monthly free EnCorps 101 webinars at http://encorps.org/webinar/.
The O*NET program is the nation’s primary source of occupational information, containing information on hundreds of standardized and occupation-specific descriptors. The database provides the basis for the Career Exploration Tools, a set of assessment instruments for workers and students looking to find or change careers.
