From the Chair
I am delighted to serve as the incoming chair of the Early Career Faculty Advisory Council (FAC). The mission of the FAC is to support IHPI leadership in promoting both the academic success and impact of research of early career faculty. I hope you will take a moment or two to learn more about the programs already in place at IHPI geared towards early career faculty, including grant writing bootcamps and mock study sessions as well as data access and methods support and the Emerging Scholars Exchange program. I have participated in the Mentoring Coffee Hour series, and have gotten to know faculty I might not otherwise have had a chance to network with. We want to hear about other ideas you may have, as well as the challenges you may be facing in these unprecedented times so that IHPI and the FAC can better support you in your academic journey. I hope you will reach out to myself or other FAC members with any ideas or needs you may have.
The Early Career Faculty council hosted its fourth annual workshop with 36 attendees. Segments included: “Strategies for Surviving and Thriving when Working from Home During a Global Pandemic,” and “SMART Goals in Changing Times: How to Make 2021 a Great Year.”
