UCSC faculty will mentor new Ph.D. recipients
Program provides training and support
Beginning July 1, several UCSC faculty members will become mentors
to new UCSC Faculty Fellows. The fellows program will provide new UC
Ph.D. recipients with training and support, as they pursue their research

As mentors, established faculty will help seven fellows develop undergraduate
courses, hone their instructional skills, and conduct research.
