Applications now being accepted at this portal until June 1, 2021
Application materials must include an application form, a nomination letter from a faculty member, CV, and a one page research statement from the candidate.
Eligibility and Selection Criteria
The CEE Rising Stars workshop is designed for early career researchers who share the experience of being a woman and/or being coded as a woman in academia. We use the term “womxn” to signify that Rising Stars is a workshop for anyone who identifies with this mission, which may include transgender women, cisgender women, non-binary people, and gender diverse people.
Applicants must be within approximately one year of graduating with their PhD or have obtained their PhD no earlier than 2016. Preference is given to applicants who have not secured a faculty position. Womxn who are currently graduate students or postdocs at MIT are not eligible.
Accommodations and Travel
MIT will cover meals and shared accommodations for two nights, and reimburse up to $600 in travel expenses (air, rail).
Please contact Professor Colette Heald or Bori Stoyanova.
