The Career Development Core is led by Dr. M. Christine McGahan
The mission of the Career Development Core is to support faculty, particularly early stage investigators and under-represented minority investigators, to enable them to reach their goals of achieving and maintaining excellence in environmental health science research. The Career Development Core focused on early stage and under-represented minority faculty investigators. This Core will produce a career development plan that provides the support required to ensure that CHHE members compete successfully for external funding with emphasis on early stage investigators and under-represented minority faculty investigators and fosters ongoing refinement of skills. The Career Development Core is coordinated with a robust Pilot Project Program that will foster early stage investigators and also serve as a mechanism to recruit new early stage faculty scientists to environmental health science (EHS) research.
The Specific Aims of the CHHE Career Development Core are:
Aim 1 To promote career development/training of early stage investigators.
Aim 2 To support training and career development of women and under-represented minorities.
Aim 3 To develop and support scientific enrichment activities.
One of CHHE’s mission is support career development of new and early stage investigators. As part of this effort CHHE will provide awards (up to $1,000) to help defray the cost of travel to scientific meetings or small symposia relevant to environmental health science or a workshop that will provide new skills. Travel/Workshop awards will be reviewed and prioritized by members of theCareer Development Core. Your request should be succinct (less than 250 words) and document the importance of attending the requested meeting/workshop. Please also include the entire budget for travel/registration, etc. Please send your proposals to Jackie Broughton. Deadline Oct 1, 2015
