ASTE Graduate Student Forum

Request for Support!

In order to better serve the needs of ASTE graduate student members between conferences, we are seeking to develop online resources with the help of experienced scholars. We are interested in information sheets, webinars, videos, slides, or other creative means of sharing information. A survey of graduate students has revealed these topics as our top priorities:

  • Job search strategies and process
  • Developing an effective CV
  • Publishing
  • Academic life and finding the correct path (research focus, teaching focus, informal science education, etc.)

If you have ideas or resources to contribute on any of these topics, please email the GSF leaders (see contact info below). We are happy to work with you to figure out the best format to share the information with graduate students!

Thank you for supporting ASTE graduate students!
