Syner-G BioPharma Group, Durham, North Carolina

My name is Keelee, and I am reaching out from Syner-G BioPharma Group. We are recruiting for our 2023 Medical Writing Fellowship Program, and some of your students would be great candidates. This opportunity is for students who will graduate with a Master's or PhD level degree in a life sciences field by March 2023 and are interested in starting a career in regulatory medical writing. The program is a fully remote, paid, 9-month program where fellows receive hands-on training on writing regulatory documents such as Clinical Study Reports (CSRs), Clinical Protocols, Investigator's Brochures (IBs), etc., as well as receive opportunities to work with pharma and biotech clients within diverse therapeutic areas. The fellows are often offered a full-time position after the program, so this really is a great steppingstone into a medical writing profession.

 Syner-G is hosting a virtual event titled "A Day in the Life of a Medical Writer" on September 14th where students can hear from our medical writing professionals about what medical writing is and how they got their start in their careers. We will also have breakout rooms during the event for attendees to network with our medical writers.

 I have attached a flyer that provides more details on the event and includes a link to register. Can you please share this flyer with your students?

Let me know if I can answer any questions you or your students may have.

Bowdoin College, Brunswick, Maine

Bowdoin College’s Department of Chemistry invites applications for a tenure-track faculty appointment at the Assistant Professor level, beginning July 1, 2023.  A Ph.D. in biochemistry, chemistry or a related field is expected by the date of appointment. We are interested in candidates able to teach introductory chemistry and biochemistry who bring expertise that connects with existing interdisciplinary programs at the College (such as Biochemistry, Neuroscience, Digital and Computational Studies, or Environmental Studies), strengthen one or more of the interdisciplinary tracks through our major (e.g. the neurochemical track), or bring new knowledge and skills (e.g. a focus on bioinformatics).

Bowdoin is a community that warmly welcomes people of all backgrounds. We encourage applications from candidates committed to the support of an inclusive campus community and those who will enrich and contribute to the College’s multifaceted diversity. We especially encourage people from historically excluded groups to apply. We recognize that recruiting and retaining faculty may involve considerations of spouses and domestic partners. To that end, where possible, the College will attempt to accommodate and respond creatively to the needs of partners and spouses of members of the faculty.

Bowdoin requires its faculty to have a promise of long-term successful research and a strong commitment to inclusive excellence in their teaching. (For a description of inclusive excellence, please consult the following resource: Williams, et. al., Toward a Model of Inclusive Excellence.) The successful candidate must possess a strong commitment to undergraduate education and demonstrate the potential to develop a funded, active, and productive research program that involves undergraduates. Bowdoin College offers opportunities for professional development, a fully-funded, year-long junior sabbatical leave (after three years of teaching and successful reappointment), and regular, generously funded, post-tenure sabbaticals.

The successful applicant will join a supportive chemistry department comprised of nine faculty members (including five women and two faculty of color), six laboratory instructors, an instrumentation specialist, and an academic coordinator. The teaching load is three courses per year and will include responsibility for an intermediate-level biochemistry, biochemistry-related, or neurochemical course with periodic offering of an intermediate level biochemistry course; an introductory chemistry course; and an advanced course related to the candidate’s research strengths or a non-majors science course. Full-time laboratory instructor support is provided for introductory and intermediate level courses.

Bowdoin College accepts only electronic submissions. Please visit to submit: 1) a cover letter; 2) a curriculum vitae; 3) a description of your research plans that includes plans for securing funding and the involvement of undergraduate researchers; 4) a statement that describes your teaching interests and expertise as well as how your teaching philosophy, scholarship, and mentorship supports our commitment to equity and inclusion; and 5) the names and contact information for three references who have agreed to provide letters of recommendation. 

 Review of applications will begin Sept. 26th, 2022.

Founded in 1794 on the Maine coast, Bowdoin is one of the oldest and most selective coeducational, residential liberal arts colleges in the country. Located in Brunswick, a 30-minute drive north of Portland, the College is in an area rich with natural beauty and year-round outdoor activities. Bowdoin’s reputation rests on the excellence of its faculty and students, intimate size, strong sense of community, and commitment to diversity (40% students of color, 7% international students and approximately 17% first generation college students). Bowdoin College complies with applicable provisions of federal and state laws that prohibit unlawful discrimination in employment, admission, or access to its educational or extracurricular programs, activities, or facilities based on race, color, ethnicity, ancestry and national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and/or expression, age, marital status, place of birth, genetic predisposition, veteran status, or against qualified individuals with physical or mental disabilities on the basis of disability, or any other legally protected statuses.
