Dear Colleagues,

I am writing to ask for your help in identifying early career scientists to
participate in the NextProf Science 2017 workshop being offered at the
University of Michigan on May 2-5, 2017 (see attached pdf). NextProf
Science is aimed at future faculty—advanced doctoral students or
postdoctoral fellows who are interested in an academic career in science at
an exceptional academic research institution and who have demonstrated a
commitment to diversity.

The science and mathematics departments of the U-M College of Literature,
Science, and Arts will host 48 future faculty participants on the U-M
campus to show them the rewards of an academic career, help them understand
the faculty search process, and connect them with faculty in their research
area, as well as academic leaders, and other participants.

The NextProf Science 2017 workshop is free to participants, who must be
U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Underrepresented minorities and women
are especially encouraged to apply. Travel, lodging, and meals will be
covered by the program.

Applicants may nominate themselves or be nominated by a faculty mentor.
Find additional information about the workshop and application materials on
the NextProf Science website at: sites.lsa.umich.edu/nextprof-science/

The deadline to receive all applications and supporting materials is:
February 15, 2017.

Please distribute this information to qualified individuals you would like
to nominate or encourage to apply to the NextProf workshop. Also please
forward this message to faculty colleagues who might know of potential

If you have additional questions, please contact um-nextprof-science at um
