New Faculty Forum

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!

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.

 

GENETICS Peer Review Training Workshop

This two-part workshop will provide an introduction to peer reviewing for early career researchers, including graduate students.

Becoming a better reviewer will help you hone some of the skills central to scientific success, including critical thinking, evaluating research, providing helpful feedback, and understanding the mindset and expectations of peer reviewers and editors.
Advance registration required.

Fee: $75. Limited attendance.

 

Publishing Q&A

Lost in publication? Not ready to publish yet, but curious about the peer-review process? Students and postdocs are invited to join journal editors, including editors and editorial staff from the GSA journals GENETICS and G3: Genes|Genomes|Genetics, over breakfast to discuss the ins-and-outs of getting your articles published. All questions welcome!

Advance registration preferred.
