Preparing for an Academic Career in the Geosciences: A Workshop for
Graduate Students and Post-doctoral Fellows
July 27-30, Stanford University
Application deadline is March 17, 2006
The workshop page has links to the workshop overview and application form
This workshop is designed specifically for graduate students and
post-doctoral fellows who are interested in pursuing academic careers.
Faculty members and administrators will provide guidance and information
that will help participants to be stronger candidates for academic
positions and to succeed in academic jobs. Session topics focus on becoming
both a successful teacher and researcher.
The workshop size is limited. The final set of participants will be
established with a goal of assembling a diverse and interactive group
representing a range of experiences, educational environments, career
aspirations, and specialties. Preference will be given to those entering or
soon to enter the academic job market.
Application must be made on-line by March 17. An important part of each
application is a statement of endorsement from a faculty member.
Each applicant must arrange for a faculty member to provide an endorsement,
which is also due by March 17. The faculty member will provide a statement
regarding the potential of the applicant to benefit from and contribute to
the workshop. It is the responsibility of the applicant to make sure that
the letter of endorsement is submitted by the deadline. There is a link to
the endorsement form on the navigation menu on the workshop website.
