It's a Micro World after all is a blog dedicated to discussing pretty much whatever I feel like. When I delve into scientific matters it will primarily be discussing microbiology (agricultural, bioenergy, and environmental focus). Otherwise, I'll probably ramble on about sports and life.

My posts are presented as opinion and commentary and do not represent the views of LabSpaces Productions, LLC, my employer, or my educational institution.

For those of you who are attending the ASA-CSSA-SSSA International Annual Meeting in Long Beach, CA this year (October 31 through November 4), there will be several Early Career Programs. I think all of them are considerably worth the time to attend.

They can be found here.

From granting writing, to interviewing, to how to write manuscripts. They also have an hour-long anti-#k3rn3d session called "Balancing Career and Home".

Brianna Blaser, Science Careers/AAAS, will talk about what work/life balance means in today's world while succeeding in your career.  She will show you how to assess your time management needs, and make the most of your time at work and home.

So, if you are attending this years tri-society, and are a relatively new career scientist, I'd give these sessions some serious thought. I know I'll be attending several. I intend on independently blogging the conference too, in case people can't attend but would like to hear about the parts of the meeting I personally attended.

Looking forward to reading your posts about the meeting. I wish the meetings I went to had more career development talks.

Yeah, me too. I didn't get to attend anything at ASM in this vein last year (I do think they had a program), but I may try to when I go to New Orleans this year. ASA does a pretty good job of integrating new researchers ... or at least engaging them. I'm not sure I always like how things turn out (for example, I viewed the whole "How to get your paper published in our societies journals" Q&A as simply the older researchers saying "Don't publish shit." which while true wasn't exactly all that helpful), but they do make the effort. Last time I sat back and took it all in, this year I have a feeling I'll be speaking up ... and hopefully not getting into too much trouble. ;)

I have to admit, this may be my last year attending ASM and ASA every single year. I think I'm going to try to move into some of the ecology society meetings, and see where that gets me. Though I tried contacting the Soil Ecology Society only to be met with resounding ... silence.
