R2G2: The Tenure Clock is Ticking: Advice on Strategic Planning for Junior Faculty
December 3rd, 2020; 12noon-1PM
Developing a strategic plan will help you more thoughtfully navigate your first years as faculty member and establish yourself as an independent investigator. Join us for a moderated panel discussion with Stanford faculty from all career stages to ask questions such as – When should I publish, and with whom? What grants should I apply for, and when? And when is the right time to join team science research projects?
About the Panelists:
Dr. Eric Appel, PhD is an Assistant Professor of Material Science and Engineering, by courtesy, of Pediatrics and Center Fellow, by courtesy, at the Woods Institute for the Environment. The Appel lab uses innovative science at the interface between supra-molecular assembly and polymer science to tackle two key areas of critical importance to society: advanced materials and health. Dr. Appel has been awarded grants from the National Institutes of Health, American Cancer Society, American Diabetes Association, and foundations to support his research.
Dr. Aida Habtezion, MD MSc is an Associate Professor of Medicine and Associate Dean of Academic Affairs in the School of Medicine. Her research involving the study of the inflammatory responses in inflammatory bowel disease and pancreatitis is supported by awards from National Institutes of Health, Department of Defense, and foundation grants. Her laboratory is interested in defining pathways that can lead to a better understanding of diseases affecting the digestive organs and develop effective therapies. Dr. Habtezion serves on multiple federal and foundation study sections and was a standing member on a NIH/NIDDK study section from 2012-2018.
Dr. Ann Arvin, MD is the Lucile Salter Packard Professor of Pediatrics and Professor of Microbiology and Immunology. From 2006-2018, Dr. Arvin was the Vice Provost and Dean of Research at Stanford. Her laboratory research focuses on molecular mechanisms of varicella zoster virus infection and immune responses to this common human herpesvirus. Her work has been recognized by election to the American Academy of Arts & Sciences, the National Academy of Medicine, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the Association of American Physicians, and the American Pediatric Society. She has been continuously funded by the National Institutes of Health for over 35 years.
Dr. Kabir Peay, PhD is an Associate Professor of Biology and Senior Fellow at the Woods Institute for the Environment. Dr. Peay’s lab studies the ecological processes that structure natural communities and the links between community structure and the cycling of nutrients and energy through ecosystems. He has received early career awards from the Ecological Society of America and the Mycological Society of America and has been awarded research grants from the National Science Foundation and the Department of Energy.
R2G2 (https://grantwriting.stanford.edu/r2g2/) is a monthly seminar series specially designed for junior faculty across the sciences, including medicine, biosciences, engineering, natural and social sciences. These sessions will cover all aspects of grant writing, delivered through panel sessions, workshops and focused talks. R2G2 will also provide unique networking opportunities, enabling cross faculty collaborations and multidisciplinary partnerships. R2G2 will ensure that junior faculty have all the tools and strategies to lead them to grant success and on to independent research careers.
