Call for Trainee Coordinators

Searching for Trainee Coordinators

The SSR Trainees Representatives, Erica Schoeller, PhD and Ashley George, PhD, have put out a call for Trainee volunteer coordinators for the Trainee Mentor Luncheon (TML), Career Consultation Center (CCC) and Roommate Referral Service (RRS) Coordinators for the 2019 Meeting in San Jose.

This is a great opportunity for SSR Trainee Members to get involved in the inner-workings of SSR, expand their scientific network and develop soft skills. If you are interested, please email trainees@ssr.org with your CV and brief one-half to one-page cover-letter, highlighting why you are interested and what you can bring to the role. Applications will be accepted until September 24th, and will announce our final decision soon after.

Trainee Mentor Luncheon: Organize 25-30 mentors to participate in the Trainee Mentor luncheon. Coordinator will be responsible for identifying potential mentors (primarily chosen from the invited speakers and SSR award winners), sending email invitations to the mentors, pairing mentors with trainees based on indicated preference, and creating an event flyer with mentor biosketches.

Career Consultation Center: Organize 8-10 mentors who will sit in 1:1 session with interested trainees during the annual SSR meeting. CCC coordinator will be responsible for sending email invitations to the mentors, organizing an event flyer, create a sign up form, and organize meetings between trainees and mentors based on matches, trainee availability, and mentor availability.

Roommate Referral Service: Organize pairing of SSR trainees who would like to share a hotel room at the annual meeting to save on costs. Coordinator will be responsible for compiling survey results of trainees interested in sharing and pairing compatible trainees based on survey results.

All positions require superb organizational skills and an ability to meet deadlines!
