Rising Stars in Computational and Data Sciences


Rescheduled and moved online due to COVID-19 pandemic.

The Oden Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences at UT Austin and Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) are partnering together to host Rising Stars in Computational and Data Sciences, an intensive workshop for women graduate students and postdocs who are interested in pursuing academic and research careers. The workshop will be held April 7-8, 2020 at the Oden Institute in Austin, TX.

We are seeking nominations for outstanding candidates in their final year of PhD or within three years of having graduated. We will select approximately 30 women to come to Austin for two days of research presentations, poster sessions, and interactive discussions about academic and research careers, with travel expenses fully covered.

The nomination form requires (1) a letter of nomination and (2) a copy of the nominee’s resume.

Full details, including the nomination form and highlights from the 2019 event, are at https://risingstars.oden.utexas.edu/

Please consider nominating one of your outstanding current/recent PhD students or postdocs. Nominations are due January 17, 2020.
