New Faculty Forum
Wednesday, April 11, 9:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.
Your first faculty appointment brings many new challenges. Network, learn, and find support at the New Faculty Forum, a one-day workshop designed
for new faculty (those within the first five years of their appointment) and advanced postdocs. Attendees will discuss common challenges,
share their elevator pitches, and have opportunities to learn about:
- tools and techniques for managing budgets effectively;
- tips for negotiating and establishing relationships with vendors;
- how to be a supportive mentor;
- the basics of designing and teaching a new course;
- and more!
Revised to reflect participant feedback from last year, this focused event will allow you to form a strong network of peers with whom you can
continue to collaborate, commiserate, and celebrate long after the meeting ends. A closing networking social will also allow you to connect
with more established Drosophila researchers. Lunch will be provided.
Advance registration required.
Fee: $100. Limited Attendance.
