Succeeding with Your K Award
Succeeding with Your K Award is an interactive and supportive peer-mentoring seminar series (offered via Zoom until further notice) that allows early-career faculty and post-doctoral fellows to look at their own work and that of others in a critical but supportive manner.
The series covers a variety of topics, including elevator pitches, the K-to-R transition, and diversifying your funding portfolio.
Succeeding with Your K Award is designed for early-career faculty members or post-doctoral fellows supported on a National Institutes of Health K award. NUCATS compiles a participant list on an annual basis based on NIH funding at the beginning of each academic year.
If you have not received an invitation and feel you should be included, please reach out.
DATE: Monday, Feb. 21 from 12:00–1:30 PM CST
