About SDB 8th Boot Camp for New Faculty

SDB 8th Boot Camp for New Faculty ONLINE
Wednesday, July 8, 2020
10 am - 7 pm (EDT)

Boot Camp Drill Sergeants: Kara Cerveny (Reed College) and Guillermo Oliver (Northwestern University)

This Boot Camp is designed for developmental biologists at a relatively early stage of their careers, primarily pre-tenure faculty and advanced postdoctoral fellows about to enter their first academic position.

The goals of the Boot Camp are to introduce best practices on effective teaching, mentoring, and grant writing, and to explore a variety of resources for developmental biology courses and course-based research experiences.  Due to the online nature of this year's boot camp, no hands-on sessions with established and emerging model organisms will take place. The camp is offered biennially by SDB’s Professional Development and Education Committee (PDEC) with partial support from SDB’s official journal, Developmental Biology.

There will be ample opportunity for networking with both junior and more established developmental biology colleagues from both primarily undergraduate institutions (PUIs) as well as more research-focused R2 and R1 institutions. 

The Camp begins on the morning of July 8th and ends in that evening. Participation is restricted to current SDB members attending the SDB Annual Meeting. The Camp is offered free of charge. Please see the tentative agenda for the 2020 New Faculty Boot Camp and submit the completed Application form by June 15, 2020 11:59 pm EDT.
