2019 CSC New Faculty WorkshopS

This program is designed to aid newly-hired chemistry faculty to develop strong research and teaching programs. The workshop will focus on  implementation of evidence-based teaching practices in the classroom, integrating teaching and research, student mentoring and effective time management. While we do spend some time on proposal writing and there will be a session with program officers from the major funding agencies, this is not the primary goal of the workshop. NIHASBMB  and CUR run separate workshops whose primary goal is to teach grantsmanship. Those events are complementary to this workshop. 

In collaboration with the ACS, the program was expanded in 2018 to run multiple workshops each year. Two workshop options are shown below. If possible we will add a third event in the Fall. The June and August events will be comparable to one another and you should apply to one or the other, not both.
