ED11E:
Professional Development for Graduate Students in the Geosciences Posters


Session ID#: 8738

Session Description:
A challenge of graduate education is not only developing a student’s understand of the concepts and techniques of their own discipline, but to prepare them to take on the activities of a professional. These not only include self-directed research, but also proposal writing, mentoring students, mission planning, reporting to funding agencies, communicating with the scientific community, and engaging in education and public outreach. Graduate education should also include preparation for careers outside of research science. These activities often take place in programs and activities outside of the students research group or even outside of their home institution. Summer schools, workshops, special sessions at professional meetings, and non-discipline based professional meetings are often important aspects of a graduate students training. This proposal invites abstracts that describe unique training opportunities for graduate students that prepare them for careers as working scientists or for jobs outside of the traditional scientific community.
