If you are an assistant professor or postdoctoral associate with research experience, you may want to set aside a few days in August to attend a NSF-sponsored workshop designed to enhance career development for future leaders in ceramic materials research and education.

Senior faculty and junior faculty peers from the international scientific community with expertise in ceramic materials will come together for an intensive two-day technical and professional development workshop. The workshop will touch on areas of research, best practices for training and teaching students and collaborative research opportunities worldwide.

The event will be Aug. 23-24, 2012 at the Westin Arlington Gateway Hotel in Arlington, Va. It is being organized by University of Arizona assistant professor, Erica Corral. (Corral’s research activities were highlighted in the August issue of The Bulletin, by the way.)

Space is limited, so registration is required. To register or for more information, contact Erica Corral at elcorral@email.arizona.edu.
