Faculty Newsletter Guide

The PSOM Well newsletter is a biweekly roundup of research funding opportunities, school news, and events, designed to convey announcements to faculty in a convenient format.

Accessing the Submission Form

A link to the Faculty Announcements online submission form can be found at This Link.

Submissions entered in this form will be reviewed, approved and added to an upcoming Faculty Announcements newsletter. We will use the contact email provided in the submission to reach out if there are any questions or concern about the form.

Submission Deadline

The newsletter is currently being published to faculty via email on the second and fourth Friday every month, with occasional additional issues as needed. All submissions entered by 5 p.m. on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month will be reviewed for publication in that week’s newsletter. Submissions received after that time will be reviewed for the following week.

Filling out the Form

We recommend filling out the form completely. If you submit the form and have questions about your submission or how the form works, reach out to Christopher Jayne at cjayne@upenn.edu.

A Note on Submissions and Submission Categories

Submissions should be of school-wide interest and of note to PSOM faculty. The newsletter compiles announcements that were formerly forwarded to PSOM faculty separately throughout the day via the SOM-FAC ANNOUNCE mailing list. 

Disclaimer: The Office of Academic Affairs reserves the right to modify submissions to fit the format of the newsletter as well as adjust for tone and readability via email delivery. Frequently submissions will be edited for brevity and will link to resources provided, so calendar links or actionable webpages are ideal for submissions.

Submission Categories 

  • Research Funding – Announcements about research funding and grant-related opportunities.
  • Announcements – General interest/other announcements.
  • Events, Seminars, Lectures and Symposia – Announcements about research presentations, talks, and meetings, as well as events of interest to Penn faculty at large.
