The NEXUS Institute for Quantitative Biology (NIQB)-IUSE project, funded by the National Science Foundation, is excited to announce the NIQB Fellows program. The NIQB Fellows program is a professional development opportunity for biology and math faculty who participate in developing, piloting, and/or implementing quantitative biology modules associated with the NIQB-IUSE project.
To complete the 2019-2020 NIQB Fellows program, participants must:
- Attend the 2019 NEXUS Institute for Quantitative Biology (NIQB), which took place in May/June 2019 at Howard Community College.
- Work with a collaborative team of biology and math faculty to develop a quantitative biology module.
- Pilot the module, if able, in one of the following biology courses: Intro Biology I (Cell and Molecular), Intro Biology II (Evolution and Ecology), Genetics, or Cell Biology.
- Present the results of the module pilot with any additional assessment data at the 2020 NIQB Annual Symposium (June 4, 2020).
- Submit a brief report on their contribution to the quantitative biology module. This report should be submitted to their institutional PI.
Faculty who complete the NIQB Fellows program will earn credit towards their institutional professional development activities. (Please see your institutional PI for specific details.)

Individuals who complete the 2019-2020 NIQB Fellows program are eligible to apply to become NIQB Mentors during the 2020-2021 academic year. NIQB Mentors will guide and support new faculty joining the NIQB Consortium through the quantitative biology module process and may earn additional professional development credit for doing so.
