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 postdoctoral 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.
The series is designed for early-career faculty members or postdoctoral 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 to Morgan Barrowman.
