This workshop is offered for early career women and minorities working at BNL and SBU (including guests and users) who may be considering a career advancement. The CARE workshop provides a unique opportunity for prospective faculty and research scientists to learn from faculty and scientific leaders in STEM fields.

The two-day workshop will focus on skills and strategies needed for Career Advancement in Research Environments. The workshop will also address areas such as work-life balance and research grant writing skills required to succeed in a scientific research-based career.

The workshop’s informal format will allow participants to interact, network, and build relationships with peers and experts. The primary goal of the CARE workshop is to help early career STEM women working in academia or government research labs to secure tenure and significantly advance in their careers.

Selection of candidates for the workshop will be done based on the career stage of the participants and preference will be given to candidates with master’s degree and above. There is no registration cost to attend this workshop and meals will be provided during the workshop.
