Workshop "On-ramps to Academia"

The University of Washington's ADVANCE Center for Institutional Change
received an award this year from the National Science Foundation
ADVANCE program to hold professional development workshops for
Ph.D.-level women in industry, research labs, consulting, or national
labs who are interested in transitioning to academic careers in STEM.
The first workshop will be held October 19 and 20, 2009.

This workshop will be very helpful to women interested in making the
transition to academia. The workshop speakers will primarily be
successful women faculty members who began their post-Ph.D. careers in
industry, research labs, consulting, or national labs. The attendees,
speakers, and workshop organizers will form a community who can
support each other during the job application period, the interview
process, the startup negotiations, and the first years in academia.
The workshops will be limited to 30 participants.

If you are interested in attending this workshop, please visit

mailing list request form. You will contacted at a later date about a
simple application process.
