I am writing to ask for your help in identifying early career scientists and mathematicians to participate in the NextProf Science 2021 workshop being offered at the University of Michigan on May 3-6, 2021 (see attached pdf). NextProf Science is aimed at future faculty—advanced doctoral students or postdoctoral fellows who are interested in an academic career in science at an exceptional academic research institution and who have demonstrated a commitment to diversity.
The U-M College of Literature, Science, and Arts natural science departments will invite up to 50 future faculty participants to the U-M campus to show them the rewards of an academic career, help them understand the faculty search process, and connect them with faculty in their research area, as well as academic leaders, and other participants. The NextProf Science workshop is free to participants, who must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Unfortunately, due to the Covid pandemic, this year the NextProf workshop will be organized in a fully virtual form.
