How can I find faculty contact information from a school of medicine page?

Hello everyone! I am currently applying for postdoc positions, and I have been running into problems with finding a PI's faculty e-mail address. I am running this issue a lot when looking into PIs affiliated with their home university's school of medicine. For example, there are many PIs in the NYU Grossman School of Medicine who I would like to contact for possible positions, but I cannot find their e-mail addresses listed on their faculty page. The only contact information listed is a phone number for a specific treatment facility. (ex: "call this number to reach the cancer center")
Can someone please give me some advice? How can I find the corresponding e-mails for publications written by a PI's lab?

You can search for their names on Google scholar. Many a time, the result is accompanied with all other information you may need; their personal emails included, especially if they've been corresponding authors in an article.
Best of luck!

One means may be to locate a paper in which the individual you seek is senior author. That paper usually includes a contact email for the first (corresponding) author. A search for the author on Google advanced search should reveal some possibilities, often in PDF form. Good luck.

Please run a google scholar search of their name. If they are corresponding authors you can find the email ids. However you can contact the institution and go to their help desk section on home page. Most of the time i have found out email IDs as a thread that I managed from the help desk.

We are pleased to announce an open call for academics and researchers to contribute to the forthcoming Handbook of Teaching and Learning in Social Innovation which will be published by Edward Elgar in 2025. This publication, led by Dr Erich J. Schwarz as the editor and in collaboration with Dr David B. Audretsch as the co-editor, aims to explore the intersections of teaching, learning, and Social Innovation to address pressing global challenges.
According to OECD, Social Innovation refers to the design and implementation of new solutions that imply conceptual, process, product, or organizational change, which ultimately aim to improve the welfare and well-being of individuals and communities.
We warmly invite authors specializing in fields of social innovation, education, and sustainability, while also welcoming contributions from other related disciplines. This comprehensive handbook embraces an interdisciplinary and global perspective, seeking the insights and expertise of scholars, educators, and professionals. By fostering the integration of theoretical frameworks, practical methodologies, and advanced research, the handbook aims to provide a diverse range of perspectives, resources, and knowledge that drive positive societal change.
The Handbook of Teaching and Learning in Social Innovation encompasses a wide scope of topics, including but not limited to:
  1. Teaching methods aimed at fostering Social Innovation, a few examples include exploring approaches such as Team-Teaching, Pedagogical Innovations for Social Change, and Transformative Teaching Strategies.
  2. Learning techniques that equip students with the necessary skills to address social challenges. Examples encompass Experiential, Project-based, Service-based, Reflective, Inverted Learning, etc.
  3. Practical experiences that offer students the opportunity to bridge theory and application in the realm of Social Innovation. This involves delving into the exploration of Social Innovation in for example Hubs, Labs, and startups, as well as Vocational Education and Training settings.
  4. A systematic examination of Social Innovation, considering its implications from various perspectives. This can include discussions on the Third Mission of Higher Education Institutions, the status of Social Innovation in primary and secondary education and other organizational matters.
  5. Case studies exploring Social Innovation in educational settings, with an emphasis on those incorporating discussions on sustainability or the SDGs. These case studies should give in-depth insights into the implementation of Social Innovation ideas and practizes, emphasizing successful efforts, challenges encountered and broader implications for attaining long-term benefits to society.
If you are engaged in Social Innovation and its potential for transformative change through education, we invite you to submit a proposal of up to 1,000 words for a chapter. Your proposal should emphasize its relevance to the scope and objectives of the handbook and be submitted by 16th October 2023. Additionally, we encourage you to share your previous work addressing these areas. The editorial team will carefully review all submissions, and a decision regarding participation will be communicated to the authors within one month following the submission deadline.
The chapter or case study itself must be original and unpublished, with a maximum length of 6,000 words for chapters and 2,000 words for case studies, including references.
We also welcome suggestions for potential collaborators or colleagues who may be interested in contributing to the handbook. Feel free to share this open call widely within your academic professional network.
