1. Make sure institutional resources are equitable, perhaps through institutional audits?
2. Encourage hiring from within, which can mitigate “two-body” geographical constraints as well as strengthen a postdoc’s “inside” knowledge. (See also: Programs: Funding & Grants)
3. Establish mentoring expectations for departments
4. Provide institutional incentives for effective mentoring of postdocs, such as consideration during tenure and promotion review and mentoring awards
