The ECP helps participants better understand the issues and challenges faced in navigating successful research careers. The SC17 ECP will be held on Monday, November 13. Session topics include funding, publishing, mentorship, time-management, promotion (and tenure as appropriate), managing service expectations, forming impactful collaborations and getting involved with SC committees. There is no additional fee for program participation: accepted participants receive free registration for the workshop.
Who should apply?
The ECP targets researchers from academia, industry and research laboratories within the first five years of a permanent position, including assistant professors and members of technical staff. Post-doctoral applicants also will be considered.
How to apply?
To apply, submit a CV (up to 4 pages) and a 250-word statement of intent by the deadline.
Participants may apply for travel support. However, no funding is guaranteed and at most will cover one night of hotel.
