Director of Employment Concerns
Jon Bomar is the National Association of Graduate-Professional Students (NAGPS) Director of Employment Concerns for 2019. One of Jon’s priorities for the NAGPS in 2019 is to assist students in implementing reform at their own schools by developing resources for actionable policy recommendations related to graduate student employment concerns. Jon broadly views employment concerns as concerns we face in our roles as graduate student workers, as well as concerns we face as we enter an evolving job market.
Jon is a Biomedical Engineering PhD candidate and the President of the Graduate Student Government at The University of Maine. He also serves as the Social Media and Outreach Coordinator for the Graduate School of Biomedical Science and Engineering. His research focuses on stem cell biology and cardiac development.
