**Deadline extended to January 26, 2020!**

Early-career scientists and mathematicians are invited to participate in the NextProf Science 2020 workshop being offered at the University of Michigan on May 4-7, 2020. NextProf Science is aimed at future faculty—advanced doctoral students or postdoctoral fellows who are interested in an academic career in science at an exceptional academic research institution and who have demonstrated a commitment to diversity. 

The U-M College of Literature, Science, and the Arts natural science departments, including the Department of Astronomy, will bring up to 50 future faculty participants to the U-M campus to show them the rewards of an academic career, help them understand the faculty search process, and connect them with faculty in their research area, as well as academic leaders and other participants. 

The NextProf Science workshop is free to participants, who must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Participants' expenses for travel, lodging, and meals will be covered.
