Dear Colleagues,

Below please find information on three professional development workshops
this Wednesday at the AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco. Everyone is
welcome. No registration is required. These workshops are possible by a
partnership between ESWN and AGU Education.

*Navigating the National Science Foundation System Workshop*

Wednesday, 11 December 2013
San Francisco Marriott Marquis – Golden Gate A

How do you make your proposal as NSF-savvy as possible? How do you best
describe your broader impacts? What is cutting edge in data management? How
do you identify the best program for application? How do you access
available education and outreach funds? There are always new initiatives
starting at NSF, beyond core programs. How do you identify and apply for
these opportunities? How are initiatives different than core programs? How
can you design effective integrated research? Answer these questions and
meet in small groups with Program Officers, get to know what they are
looking for, and learn how to ask the right questions, give the right
answers, and get funded. This workshop is open to all AGU Fall Meeting
attendees and will be particularly helpful to early-career to midcareer
participants, especially graduate students, post-docs, researchers, and
tenure-track faculty thinking about applying for NSF funding for the first
time. Co-sponsored by ESWN and AGU Education.


*Getting on the Tenure Track and Succeeding Workshop*

Wednesday, 11 December 2013
San Francisco Marriott Marquis – Golden Gate A

The tenure track can seem mysterious: a few crucial years where new
professors build a research program, develop a teaching portfolio, and hope
to be promoted. In this workshop, we aim to de-mystify the process, and
share secrets to success. This workshop is geared towards assistant
professors on the tenure-track now, as well as grad students and post-docs
considering an academic career; all are invited. This workshop is possible
through a partnership of the Earth Science Women’s Network and AGU


*Getting out in the field as a skill*

Wednesday, 11 December 2013
San Francisco Marriott Marquis – Golden Gate A

Fieldwork is an essential component for many in the geosciences, and it
provides opportunity for gaining skills in everything from temporal and
spatial reasoning to organization, planning and preparation. There are many
challenges associated with fieldwork, including physical, economical,
managerial, and legal. This workshop will provide a panel discussion on the
challenges, benefits, and strategies to being successful at planning,
leading, and completing fieldwork in a variety of settings. The workshop is
co-sponsored by ESWN, the Association for Polar Early Career Scientists
(APECS), and AGU Education.
