Kaela S. Singleton, PhD
I am a Black, Samoan, and Queer neuroscientist turned campaign manager for Solving for Science, a non-profit focused on building process and community in order to create change in STEM. The opportunity to examine, reshape and ultimately better the scientific community speaks to me on a personal level and matches the exact skills I’ve cultivated thus far as a scientist, educator, and mentor — hence the career pivot!
Toni Morrison said "when you get these jobs that you have been so brilliantly trained for, remember that if [...] you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else." I live by this saying, and throughout my career, I worked incredibly hard to earned numerous fellowships from NINDS, Burroughs Wellcome Fund, and NIGMS. Below is a link to those applications and reviews (including the application to my new job!). Its my pleasure to share these resources and help empower people. Please, don't hesitate to reach out. I'm always happy to chat, edit and review applications!
