Early Career Leadership Workshop

The Early Career Leadership Workshop is an innovative three-day intensive, residential program designed to enhance the professional skills of early career faculty and post-doctoral scholars in STEM disciplines. The interactive workshop will train attendees in meeting facilitation and leadership, proposal writing, incorporating broader impacts into research, communicating science to the media, effective teaching in higher education, data management, and mentoring students.


Participants must be post docs, junior faculty (assistant professor level) or STEM professionals who have received their PhD within 5 years of the workshop and are currently employed at a New Mexico academic institution or national laboratory. Lodging, meals, and workshop materials will be provided. Space is limited to 20 participants.

Early Career Leadership Workshops will be available in Year 2 (2019-2020) and Year 4 (2021-2022).
