and nature of, the various responsibilities imposed by academic careers
following graduate school. Although a specific framework will be provided
as a way to think about the range of responsibilities, much of the session
will include open discussion to address specific questions and concerns.

Outline of key topics:

III. Academic and other Institutions:
Research universities, other colleges and universities, community colleges,
industry, research foundations, government, K-12 teaching

UCSD academic tracks, tenure elsewhere

V. Mentoring
This session will be led by Professor David Jordan, Professor Emeritus, Anthropology, and former provost of Warren College. Professor Jordan has contributed to the professional development of PPF participants since the inception of the program.

GRANTWRITING FOR THE SCIENCES * – Thursday, Nov 12, 2009, 12:15 – 1:45 pm
Garren Auditorium, Biomedical Sciences Building, SOM

Success in academe, particularly in a research institution, can often be correlated with success in grant-writing. CTD is providing this opportunity for graduate students, TAs, and postdoctoral fellows to explore the issues involved in effective grant-writing--what are the components that, if known and well-executed, can equate with success?

Peter Wagner, M.D., Professor of Medicine and Bioengineering, will lead this session. Dr. Wagner has written on this topic for The Physiologist and will share copies of his article, "On writing a grant application: a personal view."

Although this presentation is geared to grant-writing in the sciences, you may attend even if you are in another discipline. Several participants from other disciplines have indicated that the information provided has been very useful.
