Special Events

New Faculty Forum

Sunday, August 12, 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 cocktail social hour will also allow you to connect with more established Xenopus researchers.

Advance registration required.

Fee: $85. Limited Attendance.

 

GENETICS Peer Review Training Workshop

Monday, August 13, 8:30 am – 12:30 pm

This workshop will provide an introduction to peer reviewing for early career researchers, including graduate students. The workshop will cover best practices and a mock review. Becoming a better reviewer will help you to become a better author and to 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.

 

Student and postdoc member benefit: Invite poster viewers

Amplify your work and seek expert feedback by inviting specific scientists to attend your poster presentation.

  • Undergraduate student, graduate student, and postdoctoral GSA members may invite up to three scientists to attend their poster.
  • You may invite faculty, industry researchers, or fellow early career researchers, but we suggest inviting individuals who typically attend this meeting or who are located in the same city as the meeting.
  • Please note that GSA cannot guarantee meeting attendance of any particular person.
  • GSA will reach out to these scientists and invite them to attend the meeting and your poster.
  • Your abstract and contact details will be included in the invitation.
