Tell us what you’d like to learn!
What kinds of early-career workshops could you benefit from? Let us know, and we’ll go to work to see if we can make them happen.

About the Early Career Days:

As young scholars we are confronted with many challenges: publishing, teaching, the job market, work-life balance and institutional barriers Often we face these demands alone and without much institutional or even moral support. The YSI Early Career Days provide an opportunity to confront these issues as a community by sharing experiences, building resources and providing support to navigate these early career challenges.

We hope you’ll join us to share your experiences, build resources and enjoy the support of your mentors and peers.
