MIT and Imperial College London are jointly offering an intensive 4 ½ day Global Fellows Program for PhD students. Through presentations, interactive work and hands-on activities, PhD students from Imperial (20) and MIT (20) will develop professional skills required to launch and manage a successful research career. Emphasis will be on creating and sustaining successful international research collaborations. The program will take place from Monday, June 24th through Friday, June 28th, 2013 in Sharon, Massachusetts. Morning programs will begin at 9:30am, and evening programs should be completed by 9:00pm. Participants must commit to the entire program, which includes full day events and some evenings. The Fellowship covers the cost of travel, the program, and some meals. Topics covered will include building successful working relationships and global collaborations, team and project development, global intercultural skills and communication. Participants will work in small groups with either an MIT or Imperial facilitator. Faculty members from each university will present on the topic of developing and managing international collaborations as an integral part of a research career. Eligibility is restricted to PhD students with a preference for students who have passed their qualifying exams and have a few years remaining before completing their PhD program. The application due date is Monday, March 25th, 2013; finalists will be interviewed in April. Apply online. For more information, contact Kim Benard in the GECD at firstname.lastname@example.org.
