Are you interested in making a big impression during the first 5 years of your career? The Early Career Program is designed to equip participants for significant contributions in their new careers by building skills related to obtaining funding, identifying publishing venues, establishing long-term mentor relationships, and effectively managing their time. Sessions will be held in a workshop format on the Monday before SC starts to allow participants to enjoy the full technical program. In addition to formal presentations, there will be time for peer mentoring, a chance to meet 4-5 potential long-term senior mentors (called speed mentoring), and an organized lunch for informal networking. Selected participants will be granted a workshop pass in order to participate in the program. The peer mentoring, speed mentoring, and networking lunch are only open to selected participants. However, most of the sessions will be open to all SC workshop attendees. The program is intended for people in their first five years of a permanent position (assistant professors, and members of the technical staff -MTS). Post-docs will be considered on a space available basis. Members from nontraditional fields (i.e. art, humanities, social science, etc.), women, underrepresented racial/ethnic minorities, and persons with special needs are particularly encouraged to apply.
Please complete the Submission Form to apply.
