Broadening Participation: 2023 MPS Workshop for Junior Investigators
In Person Workshop on June 4-6, 2023
Westin Alexandria Old Town, Alexandria, VA
The University of Florida, in collaboration with the NSF Directorate for Mathematical and Physical Sciences (MPS), will be hosting a workshop for new and future Principal Investigators. New researchers, assistant professors, and exceptional postdocs considering academic careers are encouraged to apply. Investigators from underrepresented groups in STEM are especially encouraged to apply. The main goal of the workshop is two-fold: (1) to provide prospective Principal Investigators who have just received their first award or who are considering applying for funding from the MPS programs with valuable information and advice on the policies, procedures, and opportunities available at NSF, (2) to train a pool of future reviewers and encourage volunteering to review individual proposal/s or serve on review panel/s as a way to learn about the NSF processes. In addition to informational presentations on various topics relevant to the future PI’s, each participant will write a mock proposal in advance and will go through full panel review processes in breakout sessions. Details on the workshop program will be announced.
Participant Support Includes:
- Hotel Room for up to 3 nights
