WISE Town Hall: Impacts of COVID-19 on Early Career Researchers

Event Information

Join WISE from McMaster University for a panel discussion of the impacts of COVID-19 on early career researchers, including Assistant Professors, CLAs and post-docs.

About this Event

In this town hall, we will discuss how COVID-19 is impacting early career researchers, including the effects of the pandemic on career progress, research funding and changes in the policy for tenure submissions, and "work-life balance" while working from home.

We will hear from Dr. Katie Moisse (Assistant Professor, School of Interdisciplinary Science), Dr. Sara Andres (Assistant Professor, Biochemistry and Biomedical Sciences), Dr. Shaiya Robinson (Assistant Professor (CLA), School of Interdisciplinary Science), and Dr. Oana Birceanu (NSERC Post-doctoral fellow, Department of Biology & McCall MacBain Post-doctoral Fellow, Teaching and Leadership) as they reflect on their experiences and guide us through these important conversations.

As a participant, you will be encouraged to share your thoughts and perspectives and ask questions of our panellists, faculty mentors, and WISE committee members. All participants will be added to our "WISE x Faculty Town Hall" Microsoft Team to connect, share resources, and continue our discussions following the event.
