REMRSEC Post-doctoral Mentoring Program
Targeting: REMRSEC post-docs and other post-docs at Mines; REMRSEC grad students; REMRSEC research groups.
The REMRSEC post-doctoral mentoring program includes mentoring at the level of both the group and the individual. Group mentoring is the more structured aspect of the program and includes sessions on eight topics that are delivered across a two year period to be consistent with the typical cycle of postdoctoral positions. The group program is structured as follows:
REMRSEC Post-doctoral Mentoring Program Year One
• Scientific Writing: Getting Published in Science, Nature, and the New York Times (Craig Taylor)
• Career Paths & Possibilities (Panel: Career Center person brief intro; academic, industry, government, something non-traditional) (Reuben Collins)
• Grant Proposal Writing (Barb Moskal)
• Effective Teaching and Presenting (Ron Miller)
REMRSEC Post-doctoral Mentoring Program Year Two
• Career Nuts & Bolts (Panel of Recent Graduates)(Tom Boyd)
• Broadening Participation in STEM: Our Roles & Responsibilities (Maureen Durkin)
• Ethics in Science & Engineering
• Making a Difference: The Social Impacts of Renewable Energy Research
The mentoring modules are presented by faculty or staff associated with the REMRSEC, Mines, or NREL, or a special guest with expertise in the particular topic. REMRSEC postdocs are required to attend the mentoring sessions. Other post-docs at Mines are also invited, as are REMRSEC graduate students and anyone participating in a REMRSEC research group.
The Postdoctoral Mentoring Program repeats every two years.
