Faculty Career Development Series

Career Development Series

The ITHS Career Development Series consist of monthly lectures and workshops designed to provide junior faculty and investigators with tools, a forum for discussion, and learning opportunities to help advance their careers.

Topics

Topics are selected based on an annual needs assessment.

Example topics include:

  • How to Write an NIH K Award
  • Making the Most of your Mentor Relationship
  • Mastering Public Speaking as a Researcher
  • Communicating your Findings Visually
  • What really happens in an NIH Study Review

Where can I find a CDS event?

ITHS partners with several UW campus and WWAMI regional partners to ensure we reach and engage the translational workforce with each series. CDS events occur across the main UW campus, in the UW Medicine South Lake Union building, and are often captured on video and edited for online distribution to our regional partners. Many of our offerings are also broadcast live as webinars to allow for flexible viewing opportunities. Check out the calendar for specific upcoming event topics and locations.

Acknowledging and Rewarding Interdisciplinary Research within Appointment, Promotion and Tenure Processes @ Online Event
May 26 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Description

This CDS offering will provide an overview of the current landscape and efforts by the ITHS Team Science core and colleagues to promote the recognition of interdisciplinary collaborative research in the Promotion and Tenure (PT) processes at the UW and beyond. The ITHS Team Science Core will describe why interdisciplinary collaborative research is critical to solving current complex scientific challenges and how recognizing and rewarding this work in PT processes is critical to encouraging the success of interdisciplinary teams.  They will present strategies for faculty promotion candidates, department chairs, and deans to recognize and support interdisciplinary collaborative research in promotion processes. Strategies for writing goal statements, annotating CVs, and soliciting external reviewers’ expert at interdisciplinary research will be discussed during the session. Participants will also have the opportunity to sign-up for an interdisciplinary collaborative research PT Special Interest Group where you can learn more about future workshops and offerings.

Learning Objectives

At the end of the session, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the importance of incorporating interdisciplinary research practices and language in the PT process
  2. Discuss current barriers and facilitators of interdisciplinary research
  3. Share best practices and ITHS Team Science APT Toolkit to aid the recognition and rewarding of interdisciplinary research in PT

Handling Everyday Conflict with Curiosity, Compassion & Courage @ Online Event
Jun 14 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Description

Interpersonal conflict in our lives can generate a gift of learning: learning something new about ourselves, others, and issues. At the same time, unresolved conflict can sap creativity, weaken team collaboration, and negatively affect one’s morale. In this session, we will look at conflict from a fresh perspective. It can be an invitation to expand our understanding of ourselves, see possibilities for advancing mutual interests with others, and generate learning for an ongoing application of conflict handling skills to practice. Participants will walk away from the session with emotional and verbal skills for meeting the challenge of conflict with curiosity, compassion, and courage.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this session, attendees will be able to:

  1. Describe the types of conflict and their consequences
  2. Explain the role of bias and emotions in handling conflicts
  3. Apply dialogue skills to conflict situations that arise in personal and professional arenas

Pre-Work

Participants should download and read the article by Tamm and Tõugu below before the event.
