Texas Tech University

Graduate Scholar Program

The CISER Graduate Teaching Scholar (GTS), Post-Doctoral Teaching Scholar (PTS) and Graduate Doctoral Scholar (GDS) programs all emphasize interaction with and mentoring by outstanding TTU teaching faculty, with the objective of producing the next generation of university teachers. We believe that these kinds of interactions and experiences will generate the most well-rounded, research- and teaching-capable young scientists. These CISER Scholar programs partner with TTU Biological Sciences and the Teaching, Learning, and Professional Development Center (TLPDC aka TLTC) for training to support these scholars until they graduate or begin faculty positions.

Current and past TTU faculty leaders of the GTS and GDS programs:

  • Stephanie Lockwood, Biological Sciences
  • Michael San Francisco, Biological Sciences
  • Lou Densmore, Biological Sciences
  • Roman Taraban, Psychology
  • Susan Tomlinson, Honors College
