The Department of Pediatrics in the College of Medicine at the University of Cincinnati is committed to the mentorship and development of its postdoctoral fellows. Peggy Hostetter, MD, Chairman of the department, has appointed Jessica Kahn, MD, MPH, Associate Chairwoman for Academic Affairs, as the person responsible for the oversight of postdoctoral recruitment and retention.
An Office of Postdoctoral Affairs has been put in place to address issues directly related to the recruitment and retention of postdoctoral research fellows. Dr. Kahn has appointed Lisa Privette Vinnedge, PhD, as the Director of the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs and the person responsible for efforts in the retention and career development of postdoctoral fellows. Umasundari (“Uma”) Sivaprasad, PhD, and Edith Markoff, PhD, lead the effort to recruit talented postdocs to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Research Foundation.
The primary mentoring relationship is with the postdoctoral fellow’s adviser. In addition, the leadership within the postdoctoral office is available for mentoring. Postdoctoral fellows are advised to form a mentoring committee that includes their adviser as well as at least two other faculty in their field of interest. This committee should meet at least two times a year to monitor the progress of the fellow and to give appropriate advice. Career guidance is also expected of this group. It is also encouraged that postdoctoral fellows identify a career interest early in their training and create a network of mentors with experience in attaining that career
All fellows are required to be evaluated annually by their adviser. Through this process, fellows usually receive merit increases to their stipend.
Cincinnati Children’s provides examples of successful grants from multiple NIH mechanisms. These examples, as well as “boilerplate” statements on the facilities at Cincinnati Children's, can be downloaded through the internal company webpage, Centerlink - Grants.
It is expected that all faculty and fellows will have their new grant proposals reviewed at least one month prior to submission. A list of internal reviewers is updated yearly and provided to all faculty and fellows by way of our intranet. The signature of an internal reviewer is required before any grant can be submitted.
