Rising Stars in EECS

An Academic Career Workshop for Women

This workshop brings together women who are interested in careers in academia, for two days of scientific interactions and career-oriented discussions. It will include research talks/posters as well as presentations on aspects of life in academia – from finding a faculty position to parameters of success as a junior faculty member. Participants will have the opportunity to present their ongoing research, to interact informally with our faculty members at UC Berkeley and from MIT, Stanford University, University of Washington, UC San Diego and Harvey Mudd College, and to receive advice for advancing their careers.
