Graduate students and postdocs, are you gearing up for a career in academia? Primarily Undergraduate Institutions (PUIs) offer a substantial proportion of the available tenure-track faculty positions in the life sciences. For toxicologists interested in careers that combine research and teaching, a PUI can provide an excellent setting for interdisciplinary research collaborations and the opportunity to introduce undergraduate students to toxicology, in both the classroom and the laboratory.
