Early Career Geoscience Faculty Workshop: Teaching, Research, and Managing Your Career

July 22-26, 2018 with optional trip to NSF on Friday, July 27
on the campus of the University of Maryland, College Park, MD


Application deadline: March 16, 2018

If you are in your first three years of a permanent faculty position, please apply to join us for a multi-day workshop in a stimulating and resource-rich environment where you will participate in sessions on topics including effective teaching strategies, course design, establishing a research program in a new setting, working with research students, balancing professional and personal responsibilities, and time management. Participants must have a full-time faculty position at a two-year or four-year college or a university at the time of the workshop and must be in their first three years of full-time teaching or starting a full-time position in the Fall. The workshop is offered by NAGT On the Cutting Edge professional development program for geoscience faculty with support from the National Science Foundation, Geological Society of America and American Geophysical Union.

The workshop registration fee is estimated at ~$1250 ($1200 for NAGT members). Accommodations and some meals may be covered by the registration fee, pending support from NSF. Travel is not included in the registration fee. Participants or their home institutions must provide transportation to and from the workshop. In cases where the cost of attending this workshop would cause financial hardship, you may be able to apply for a stipend to help defray these costs. Ask your department or university for funds to attend as well – many have been quite supportive. The registration fee will be due in May after notification of acceptance into the workshop.
