The 2020 Professional Development Workshop in Ceramics will be held on June 4-5, 2020 on the campus of Johns Hopkins University. The purpose of this workshop is to provide career-development opportunities for selected early-career faculty in the area of ceramics science and engineering, while also strengthening the ceramics community through networking interactions among all participants. The workshop will also facilitate a broader discussion on emerging research areas in ceramics science and engineering.

The workshop will feature technical presentations from recent CAREER awardees in the National Science Foundation Ceramics Program, feedback from expert panelists on research and scholarship, and panel discussions led by experts on a variety of topics, including mentoring success stories, managing a research group, identifying and avoiding unconscious bias, navigating the tenure track, and a facilitated discussion of the future of ceramics research and education.

We encourage the participation of interested early-career researchers. There are limited spots available, so please fill out the application as soon as possible, and no later than April 17, 2020. Travel grants are available to cover part or all of the travel expenses for selected early-career researchers.
