The 2007 Career Mentoring Workshop is sponsored in part by the National Science Foundation.
The workshop will cover a variety of topics targeted to "junior" academic researchers and industrial and national laboratory researchers. See the agenda.
For junior academic researchers and graduate students: we will have panels on how to get the best out of attending a conference, getting a job and negotiating a start-up package, getting funding, and surviving the tenure process.
We will have panels getting started in a research lab, being successful both within one's institution and in one's research community, and planning one's career.
