Early and Mid Career Heliophysics Roundtable
The NASA Heliophysics Division and its director, Dr. Nicky Fox, recognize the impact the pandemic has had on mentorship and networking opportunities in this community. In light of these challenges, we will be hosting a second set of round table discussions with early career and mid-career scientists to both discuss current NASA HPD plans to help mitigate impacts stemming from or exacerbated by COVID impacts and receive feedback on the additional needs and concerns of this segment of our community.
We invite individuals in the space science and heliophysics community to participate in these round table discussions and/or provide additional concerns. To participate and/or provide feedback, we ask that community members self-nominate by completing this webform by September 22, 2021.
The roundtables will be divided into two categories: early and mid-career. Individuals will be grouped based on time until/since dissertation:
• Individuals considered ‘early career’ are those who are two years prior dissertation up to seven years post dissertation.
• Individuals considered ‘mid-career’ are those who are between seven- and 20-years post dissertation.
We hope to hold more of these events in the future so if you are unable to attend this round, there will be additional opportunities to participate. We will reach out to you shortly after the due date with more information.
