Weaving the Future of Animal Behavior
A new professional-development opportunity for early-career animal behavior scientists
Our goal is to advance the future of animal behavior science by supporting and promoting the efforts of early-career professionals through workshops, symposia, and long-term, multi-level mentoring.
May 17-19, 2019 Symposium: We begin our initiative with a 2.5-day professional development symposium consisting of panel discussions, activities, and peer mentoring circles. Symposium participants will be early-career animal behavior professionals, including pre-tenure faculty and advanced postdocs. We particularly encourage women and scientists from underrepresented groups in animal behavior to apply. Registration, lodging and travel expenses are covered by an award from the National Science Foundation (IOS-Animal Behavior program #1833455).
July 23-27, 2019 ABS Workshops: With support from the Animal Behavior Society, we will also host 1-day workshops immediately before the ABS meetings, beginning on July 23 at the Behaviour 2019 conference in Chicago. With funding from both the ABS and NSF, we will be offering also travel awards to cover expenses for some participants.
