Satellite Symposium

Breakout Sessions

2:00 pm–4:00 pm Mar 20 (US - Eastern)

Following the small group sessions, we expect to inspire and build an active and lasting mentoring network between the participants and the table mentors! We envision that this network will be maintained during the year via video conferencing approaches as needed.

Small group and table themes:
I. Securing a faculty/research position
-Job application (personal letter) and process
-Job interviewing tips and strategies
-Startup and space negotiations
-Tenure process and procedures
-Mentor selection or how do I pick a mentor
-Scholarly productivity
-Work/life balance

II. Securing research funding
-Peer-review process - training and contemporary tools
-Writing effective specific aims
-Design a compelling biosketch
-Industry funding opportunities and how to navigate
-Writing clinical protocols with SPIRIT
-I got a K, now what?
