Tuesday's Early Career Faculty Development Session
On Tuesday afternoon, we are offering a special session on early career faculty development. This session, targeting senior graduate students, postdocs, and junior faculty members in our community, aims to offer relevant guidance and advice for new faculty as well as those who aspire to become faculty members. Tenure clock is typically six or seven years long, and it is crucial to take the right steps and have the proper guidance from the very beginning in order to increase the likelihood of success. Having early career awards from major funding agencies is definitely a significant stride in the right direction. Please join us as we invite Program Directors from three major US funding agencies.
This session will be from 2:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. and open to all attendees of Hilton Head 2020.
This year's Rump Session topic tackles one of the most important aspects of publishing in our field: Creating compelling images and graphics that showcase your work while clearly conveying the maximum amount of information to the target audience. Felice Frankel, a renowned expert on scientific imaging, will present tips and techniques to create cover-worthy images of your research. In rump session tradition, attendees will then have an opportunity to apply their hand at these skills, with the results being shared to the Hilton Head community.
