The Early Career Program provides a series of special sessions that target early career researchers, that is academic, industry and laboratory professionals and post-docs within the first five years of a permanent position (assistant professors and technical staff). The program aims to help participants secure a better understanding of the issues and challenges faced while navigating a successful research career. Topics include:
- Funding: understanding the agencies, funding instruments and strategies for securing research funding;
- Publishing: understanding the landscape of conference, journal and other publication venues including getting involved in conference leadership or journal editorship;
- Mentorship: understanding the difference between a mentor and a sponsor and establishing effective, long-term mentoring and sponsoring relationships;
- Time management: striking a balance between our professional and personal responsibilities and obligations.
Sessions will be held in a workshop format on Monday, November 13, before the full SC17 Technical Program begins. This will allow participants to enjoy the Technical Program as fully as possible. There is no additional charge for this program.
