Time Management
Thursday, June 25, 2015 - 11:45am to 1:15pm
Presenters: 
Daniel Bernstein (Kwantlen Polytechnic University)
Andrew Butler (University of Texas at Austin)
Jessecae Marsh (Lehigh University)
Deryn Strange (John Jay College)
Description: 

In this panel discussion, organized by Suparna Rajaram and Maryanne Garry on behalf of Women in Cognitive Science, four successful SARMAC researchers will address specific themes of academic life in which time management plays a crucial—and sometimes perhaps a hidden—role in success. These themes include 1) Having to decide between attending a conference versus spending that time writing, 2) balancing research, teaching and service, 3) making time to write, and 4) balancing family and career. A mix of junior and senior faculty, both men and women, will share the range of experience that we ourselves have as scientists, faculty, and administrators. We also want to engage the audience in discussion, and give people a forum ask the questions that are most on their minds. WICS encourages both women and men to attend its meetings.

Panel at the Meeting of the Association for Psychological Science

Merging professional development and science: Constructing a successful grant proposal
Saturday, May 23, 2015 - 3:30pm to 5:20pm
Presenters: 
Edith Chen, Northwestern University
Erika Forbes, University of Pittsburgh
Debra Titone, McGill University
Natasha Tokowicz, University of Pittsburgh (Discussant)
Description: 

All scholars are expected to submit grants and successful grant applications are crucial to sustain a career in science. The importance of obtaining grants in this difficult climate is especially high for individuals coming up for tenure. In this panel discussion, we will bring together researchers who have been successful in getting grant support (and who, given the severe funding restriction in the past years, have also dealt with rejections and developed strategies for revision and resubmission). The panel will address several important topics, including: transitioning from advisor-directed to independent research, collaborations across domains of expertise, converging evidence across methodologies, and spanning translational and transformational research. The discussion will focus on information about grants across psychological domains and will address issues of particular relevance to junior scholars who are embarking on their scholarly careers in this period of transition and expansion into interdisciplinary science.
