MIT invites top early career women in civil and environmental engineering and related domains (e.g. mechanics, materials, environmental and earth science) who are interested in careers in academia to apply to attend this new innovative workshop to be held on the MIT campus. The event will bring together the next generation of female CEE leaders from across the country for two days of scientific interactions and career-oriented discussions. It will feature research presentations from the participants, faculty talks, panels on issues relevant to academic careers, and opportunities for informal networking with other MIT faculty.
Space is limited, so apply now. A group of 20 outstanding candidates will be selected from all submissions. Applicants must be female and be within approximately one year of graduating with their PhD or have obtained their PhD no earlier than 2010.
Applicants should apply by visiting the CEE Rising Stars web site. In addition, applicants must submit a nomination letter from a faculty member, a CV, and a one page research statement. Visit the web site for complete submission instructions. MIT CEE will cover meals and shared accommodation for two nights, and reimburse up to $600 in travel (air, rail).
