Although we are new to the Pasadena area, we are already making connections with our new Caltech colleagues. These relationships are the foundation upon which we will continue to build as we establish a new, cutting-edge approach to understanding the natural world. Once fully established, we believe we will make a major contribution to Los Angeles’ robust intellectual ecosystem.
Johns Hopkins Campus
With a focus on collaboration and early-career training, Carnegie’s Baltimore campus encourages synergistic and long-lasting relationships between faculty, researchers, students, and support staff.
Our scientists enjoy access to world-class research facilities at Johns Hopkins University, an open-department structure where equipment, resources, and ideas are freely shared, and a robust amount of professional development opportunities — including weekly seminars, postdoc-organized symposiums, and grant writing workshops.
We believe that solid friendships underscore innovative and collaborative research. Weekly happy hour events, table tennis tournaments, holiday parties, and costume contests are just a few ways we get to know each other.
Between art and photography exhibits and frequent on-site musical jam sessions, creative expression is an important part of the culture for our global ecologists and plant biologists.
A focus on wellness and mental health includes a digital forums for celebrating accomplishments, as well as appreciating nature and travel photos.
A group devoted to diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts meets bimonthly to advance efforts to make Carnegie facilities welcoming to individuals of every background.
The postdoc association plans professional development events, as well as social gatherings for recognizing the contributions of Carnegie's early career researchers.
