Dear ES_JOBS_NET subscribers:

If you are going to the AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco this year, you
may be interested in these three career workshops held on Wednesday,
December 17th:

(1) Navigating the US National Science Foundation System

(2) Tenure-track careers

(3) Science careers outside academia

All workshops are free and open to the public. No registration required.

These workshops are made possible through a partnership between the Earth
Science Women's Network and AGU Education.

San Francisco Marriott Marquis - Golden Gate C2

*Navigating the NSF System, 9:00-12:00 PM*

*Wednesday, December 17th *


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 the Earth Science Women’s Network and AGU Education.

Facilitated by Meredith Hastings

*Getting on the Tenure Track and Succeeding, 1:00-3:00 PM*

*Wednesday, December 17th *


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

Facilitated by Becca Barnes

Featured panelists:

*Megan Anderson*, Associate Professor, Colorado College

*Maura Hahnenberger*, Lecturer (tenure-track), Salt Lake Community College

*Tara Hudiburg, *Assistant Professor, Univ of Idaho

*Maureen Long, *Assistant Professor, Yale University

*Caroline Masiello, *Associate Professor, Rice University

*Opportunities Beyond Academia, 3:00-5:00 PM*

*Wednesday, December 17th *


Thinking about a career outside of academia? It can often be difficult to
get help finding a job in a non-profit or government agency, within
industry, or as a consultant – after all your advisor is an academic and
most likely doesn’t have “first-hand knowledge.” Maybe you want to stay in
academia but are interested in working as a consultant or even starting
your own business. This workshop will discuss practical skills for making
the transition to successful post-graduate careers (yes, there is life
after the MS/PhD!). A panel of scientists with experience outside of
academia will share their “lessons learned” and answer your questions about
how to find and apply for jobs in policy, federal research labs, state
agencies, NGOs, industry, and private enterprise. Geared towards graduate
students and post-docs who are considering options outside of academia, as
well as faculty who are interested; all are invited. This workshop is a
partnership between the Earth Science Women’s Network and AGU Education.
