Rising Stars in Chemical Engineering
An Academic Career Workshop for Women

Chemical Engineering at MIT invites top early-career women who are interested in faculty careers in Chemical Engineering to apply to the ChemE Rising Stars Workshop held on the MIT campus each fall.

[*We are committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for Rising Stars attendees and are actively monitoring the development and impact of the Covid-19 on the ability for all to travel and attend safely. As with many affairs during these uncertain times, the structure of the weekend may change, but we are committed to creating an event that supports and informs our future academic leaders. Should alternative plans become necessary, we will immediately inform attendees and update the website.]

This two-day workshop will bring together top female doctoral students and postdoctoral researchers who are approximately one year away from submitting applications for faculty openings. The program will include research presentations, panel discussions with MIT faculty, communications workshops, and networking events with faculty, graduate students, and postdoctoral researchers currently at MIT.
