E. Responsibilities of Faculty Mentors

The Faculty Mentor is generally expected to provide intellectual and financial support for the research training of the Postdoctoral Appointee. The Mentor works with the Appointee to develop a research plan and goals for the training period. The Mentor approves the research plan and ensures that adequate research supplies and laboratory space are available to conduct the research. The Mentor is expected to encourage and facilitate presentation of the Appointee's research findings in peer-reviewed journals and at national scientific meetings. The Mentor provides ongoing advice concerning the research plan as well as career development guidance. The Mentor must also provide an annual written performance evaluation to the Appointee and to the Postdoctoral Training Committee (see section F).
