The Department of Physics at Stanford invites top early career women in physics and astronomy who are interested in careers in academia to apply to the Rising Stars in Physics Workshop to be held on the Stanford campus.
This workshop will bring the next generation of physics academic leaders together for two days of scientific discussions and informal sessions aimed at navigating the early stages of the academic career. In addition to research presentations, we will hold panel discussions with Stanford and invited faculty on issues relevant to academic careers, have opportunities for informal networking with faculty members at Stanford, and set aside time for the participants to get to know each other and form connections that will hopefully persist through time.
The 2019 Rising Stars in Physics Workshop is made possible with the support of the Heising-Simons Foundation, as one of a series of workshops initiated and co-sponsored by MIT.
Undergraduates, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows are mentored in astrophysics, cosmology, particle physics, atomic and laser physics, and condensed matter physics.
