ASMS Funds to Support Assistant Professors with Speaker Program
The ASMS has allocated funds to support an ASMS-sponsored speaker program, with the objectives to (i) support vibrant seminar programs at local MS discussion groups, (ii) increase exposure of students at non-Ph.D. granting institutions to research in mass spectrometry, and (iii) promote exposure and professional development of young MS professionals at the onset of an independent research career.
Any ASMS member at the rank of Assistant Professor (at the time of invitation) is eligible to receive support, with no more than two sponsored trips per calendar year per speaker. Eligible hosts may be (i) any North American MS discussion group or (ii) any North American non-Ph.D. granting college or university, with no single host to propose more than two ASMS-sponsored events in a calendar year.
Additional information regarding the program, including the application process and eligible expenses (travel, meals, lodging and expenses up to $1500 per event, until the annual budget for the program is exhausted) may be found at: http://www.asms.org/member-center/discussion-groups.
