Opportunity for early- career bioscientists: Clarkson Early Career Colloquium in Bioscience Crossing Disciplines

Dear Fellow Chairs & Program Heads of Bioscience Departments,

As Chair of Biology at Clarkson University, I am writing to ask for your help at getting out the word and encouraging appropriate applicants for the inaugural Clarkson Early Career Colloquium in Bioscience Crossing Disciplines. This mini-conference is intended for early- career bioscientists, with particular outreach to women and underrepresented minorities seeking academic appointments at small research universities that also have a strong commitment to undergraduate and graduate education. Participants will have an opportunity to network and receive mentoring on how to land a job and what it is like to have a position at an academic institution with high research and teaching expectations such as Clarkson, or at a small research institute such as the Trudeau Institute. It provides an opportunity for Clarkson University and the Trudeau Institute, which intend to be hiring for more positions in the coming years, to meet and make contacts with promising scientists who could enhance and diversify our bioscience faculty. For this first colloquium, we are interested in broad areas of biosciences, including but not limited to bioengineering (including immunoengineering), ecological/evolutionary epidemiology, bioinformatics; behavioral endocrinology, biotechnology, cell biology, and synthetic biology.

I have attached a flyer and detailed announcement of the program. An advertisement will also soon appear in the Chronical of Higher Education.

Please feel free to forward this message to colleagues at your institution or elsewhere who mentor or may know appropriate candidates for this colloquium.
