Distinguished Professor Emeritus Brian Mulloney has accepted a two-year appointment on a committee that helps scientists from underrepresented groups launch faculty careers on UC campuses. A research professor in Biological Sciences, Mulloney will serve for two years on the Faculty Advisory Committee of the President's Postdoctoral Fellowship Program.

Run through the University of California Office of the President, the goal of the program is to provide research opportunity and career development for scholars whose work will enhance the diversity of the academic community at the University of California. Approximately 75% of UC President's Postdoctoral Fellows have received tenure track faculty appointments. Since 2003, more than 100 former fellows have received faculty appointments at University of California campuses.

"I am extremely proud that Dr. Mulloney will be representing UC Davis on such an important committee, which helps Ph.D. recipients from underrepresented groups launch careers throughout the UC," College of Biological Sciences Dean James E. K. Hildreth said.
