FASEB Tool Highlights Society Resources for Early-Career ResearchersThursday, October 1, 2020
FASEB recently launched a new tool to help scientists easily locate resources offered by its 29 scientific member societies. With this tool graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, and early-career faculty can quickly identify opportunities to support their professional development and research.
Navigating through the tool is as simple as a click of a button. The landing page features four broad categories: “Awards and Fellowships,” “Professional Development,” “Mentoring and Networking,” and “Select Membership Benefits.” Clicking on one of these four categories will redirect the user to a list of subcategories.
For example, perhaps you are a trainee interested in learning more about the benefits available as part of society membership. Clicking “Select Membership Benefits” will redirect you to a page listing the following subcategories:
If exploring the cost of membership as a trainee, click “Trainee and Early Career Membership.” Choose the society you already belong to or explore all the societies to help gauge your interest in joining a society based on the resources offered. Unsure about what the different acronyms mean? The “Society Directory” provides a quick reference for society names and websites.
After clicking a society button, the tool will redirect you to the relevant links for the topic of interest. Click the links to open a new tab and explore the offering. For example, here is what the American Physiological Society offers trainees:
Use the buttons at the bottom of the page to navigate back to the list of societies in the subcategory or back to the main categories.
The goal for this tool is to provide an easy-to-navigate system that will aid in exploring the useful resources FASEB member societies offer. If you have any questions, notice broken links, or want to suggest society programs to include, email us.
