Career Mentoring Workshop 2010
We are happy to announce that we have completed the 6th biennial CRA Career Mentoring Workshop. The workshop provided career advice and mentoring activities for senior graduate students, post docs, assistant professors, and individuals just starting as industrial researchers in computer science. The workshop was structured as a series of panels interleaved with opportunities to network with senior researchers and representatives from the NSF, DARPA, and NIH.
Our Panels Were: Planning Your Research Career, Career Networking, Teaching, Mentoring and Managing Students, Preparing a Tenure Dossier, Time Management and Family Life, Advice from Early Career Faculty, and Writing Grant Proposals.
There was a registration fee to cover the cost of the workshop. Limited funding was available for advanced graduate students and faculty from minority serving institutions or minority faculty.
