What is TIERS?
Established in 2010 as the K-Club, TIERS addresses the career development needs of K awardees along with other junior faculty and postdoctoral fellows at a similar career stage. The mission of TIERS is to provide beneficial information on career planning and development including mentoring, presentation of findings, grant preparation, and project and team management. These topics are presented in a relaxed environment structured to promote collaborative learning and problem solving and to strengthen relationships in an effort to broaden the potential of each researcher both individually and collectively.
Who attends TIERS?
Any junior faculty or postdoctoral fellow interested in an academic research career. You do not have to have a current K award to attend.
