Anyone already in a tenure-track position is not eligible. We have limited spots and would like to focus on those who are not yet in a tenure-track role.

Please upload a nomination letter of support and the nominee’s resume. No particular format or length is required.
When is the Nomination submission deadline?
Nominations are due January 17, 2020.
Are nominations restricted to US citizens?
All nominations are welcome. However, due to limited funds to support travel, the number of attendees from international locations will be limited.
What are the eligibility requirements?
Candidates should be within three years of having received their PhD degree, or within one year of expected PhD graduation.
What topics will be covered in the agenda?
The agenda will be a mix of research presentations, technical discussions, career advice panels, and discussions about academic/research life. The specific agenda will be posted once attendees have been selected.
Can multiple people submit a nomination for the same person?
We prefer one nomination letter per applicant, but it can be signed by multiple nominators.
Should the nominee be involved in the application process or should it be anonymous?
Yes, the nominee should be involved! The nominee should provide their resume and also be enthusiastic about wanting to attend such an event.
When will nominees be notified of selection?
Nominees will be notified in mid-February.
