A recent NSF EPSCoR-funded project highlighted a surprising gap between the goals and preparation of postdoctoral researchers.

The 2023 New Mexico Journal of Science, published by the New Mexico Academy of Science and New Mexico EPSCoR, is now available for public viewing. This year's Journal includes poster and oral session abstracts from the 2023 New Mexico Research Symposium. Also included are four papers authored by New Mexico researchers investigating topics ranging from ocean litter to the use of local honey to treat antibiotic resistant infections.
What is the goal? To provide opportunities for non-tenured AND tenured investigators to develop their individual research potential through extended collaborative visits to the Nation’s premier private, governmental, or academic research centers. Only investigators from research universities and primarily undergraduate institutions in EPSCoR states (including NM) are eligible to apply. What’s new in 2024?Changes impacting both Tracks:
