MIT Application

Please note: applications are now closed for MIT's CEE Rising Stars Workshop.

This workshop, which will be held on October 24-25, 2019, brings together women who are interested in careers in academia, for two days of scientific interactions and career-oriented discussions. It will include research talks as well as presentations on aspects of life in academia -- from finding a faculty position to parameters of success as a junior faculty member. Participants will have the opportunity to present their ongoing research, to interact informally with our faculty members and to receive advice for advancing their careers.

Eligibility: Applicants must be women and be within approximately one year of graduating with their PhD or have obtained their PhD no earlier than 2014. Preference is given to women who have not secured a faculty position. Women who are currently graduate students or postdocs at MIT are not eligible.

Applications are due June 7, 2019.
