The EMGS Mentoring Program
You are invited to participate in a mentoring program sponsored by the Environmental Mutagenesis and Genomics Society. You may choose to participate as a mentor or as the mentored or both! Participation in the EMGS Mentoring Program could have a number of tangible benefits for you. You could obtain scientific and technical advice from someone knowledgeable in your field. You might receive assistance with grant or manuscript writing. You might learn who in your field is currently looking for a postdoc. These types of mentoring interactions will occur based on your specific circumstances: your experiment won't work, the grant deadline is approaching, or you're looking for a new position.
EMGS Travel Awards
Students and New Investigators are the future. EMGS strives to help students and postdoctoral level investigators to establish long-term relationships that will promote career development. The EMGS offers a limited number of Student and New Investigator Travel Awards to assist students and new investigators to attend and participate in the EMGS Annual Meeting.
