The Student Affairs Committee (SAC) is recruiting panelists from both academic and professional positions to participate in this year’s ISSRM Student Forum in Sweden on June 18th. The Student Forum is an opportunity for IASNR student members to meet and discuss professional development strategies. This year’s forum is divided into several workshops focusing on grant funding, fellowship writing, CV writing, job interviewing, and an international career panel. The workshops are listed below with descriptions of what type of speakers the SAC is seeking.
Grant Funding & Fellowships Writing Workshop
Faculty and researchers in different stages of their careers will discuss their experiences applying for grants, tips on how to successfully write grants and fellowships, lessons they learned and application pitfalls to avoid.
International Career Panel
The panel aims to provide ISSRM student attendees with an opportunity to meet and engage with international scholars and practitioners. Practitioners and scholars will share their experiences with students about international and trans-boundary natural resource problems and their overall careers.
CV/ Job Market Talk
The panel will be made up of newly hired recent graduates, postdocs, and faculty and/or individuals who have served on search committees. This workshop will be divided into two sections for academic and non-academic job search. For faculty positions, the panelists will provide students with information on constructing a CV and the job process, from online interviews to on campus interviews. They will also discuss the “Do’s” and “Don’ts” of faculty interviews. For non-academic positions, the panelists will provide students with information on how to prepare for a non-academic job, interview success and overall tips on applying for non-academic jobs.
The graduate students enjoy learning from professionals in different career stages regarding navigating careers on the job market, securing funding, and general career development. If you are willing to serve as a panelist in the interest of supporting our student members, please contact email@example.com by April 30th. Thank you in advance.
