Moving FORWARD in Space 2013 Workshop
Are you an early career scientist whose goal is a tenured academic position? Then consider joining us for the Moving FOWARD in Space workshop on the Sunday before LPSC (March 17) from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Woodlands Waterway Marriott.
The workshop is geared toward providing young female scientists with information and skills necessary to be successful in a tenure-track academic position. Meeting activities will focus on developing networking connections, techniques for more successful writing, acquiring grant funding, sharing of classroom ideas and materials, maintaining work-life balance, and challenges for dual career couples.
Attendance will be limited; please visit Moving FORWARD in Space for applications and more information (including details on applying for a travel stipend to help cover hotel costs for Saturday night). Although this conference is aimed specifically at female scientists, we encourage all underrepresented minorities and dual career-couples in the planetary sciences to apply.
[Why FORWARD? Both workshops have been funded by a grant from FORWARD to Professorship, which was funded by the NSF ADVANCE program.]
The first workshop (announcement and follow-up posts) was definitely a success – if any of our attendees catch this post, please share your experiences (and perhaps how you’ve built on them since the workshop) in the comments.
