Event description
Join us for a free half-day workshop specifically for predoctoral, postdoctoral, and early career researchers in the field of anthrozoology

About this Event

The field of anthrozoology has experienced an increase in graduate and career opportunities in recent decades. However, due to the interdisciplinary and disparate nature of our field, it can be difficult to find graduate and career opportunities, obtain salary and research funding, and network with others in the field. This workshop aims to provide a space for these opportunities in a free, virtual platform.

Below is a draft schedule for the workshop:

10:00 – 10:15 EST - Welcome and Introductions

10:15 – 11:00 EST - Careers in Anthrozoology Panel

This panel aims to inform individuals about the broad range of academic and non-academic anthrozoology career pathways available, while discussing current challenges navigating the anthrozoology job market

11:00 – 11:15 EST - 15-min break

11:15 – 11:45 EST - National Institutes of Health (NIH) Funding for Predoctoral, Postdoctoral, and Early Career Researchers + Q&A

11:45 – 12:15 EST - National Science Foundation (NSF) Funding for Graduate Students: The Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) + Q&A

A representative from the NSF will discuss the GRFP funding mechanism for anthrozoology graduate students in the US

12:15 – 12:30 EST - 15 min break

12:30 – 1:30 EST - Conversations & Connections Networking Breakout Rooms

This networking session will provide a structured platform in which individuals can connect with others at similar stages of their careers and in similar fields of research to facilitate cross-disciplinary networking

11:30 – 12:00 Wrap Up, Discussion, and Next Steps to Stay Connected

Learn about our new ISAZ student/postdoc/early career Facebook group to stay connected, share research experiences and resources, and form interdisciplinary and international collaborations with others in the field.
