A very informative panel-style workshop was led by DTM staff scientists Diana Roman, Peter van Keken, and Lara Wagner on the subject of writing research and teaching statements.  van Keken distributed a 2006 Science magazine article in advance of the workshop as required reading. The workshop was attended by over 30 campus postdocs. 

  • How to get your application into the top 15, then top 5 pile
  • Customize each research statement
  • Why is your research important - big picture
  • Provide a clear vision for your next five years
  • Study the school's teaching statement - how will you fit in?
  • Do not overcommit

A Youtube video of the workshop is available.
