We are seeking both junior and senior scholars to participate as Mentors and CV Reviewers at the History of Science Society’s meeting in Atlanta, November 2-5, 2016. Duties involve a commitment of about one or two hours for a Mentor or a CV Reviewer. Both programs are productive and rewarding ways to encourage and prepare the next generation of scholars. We also encourage graduate students and early career scholars to sign up for the mentorship program and a CV review during the meeting. 


Mentorship: For the volunteer, serving as a Mentor begins with an informal meeting and then the sharing of connections and insight on scholarship directly with an HSS student during the conference. This mentorship serves as the beginning of a productive professional relationship and window for the student into the network of academia.


CV Reviews: As a CV Reviewer, the professional brings an expertise to the HSS student’s CV. In a brief 15-minute session, the reviewer examines the reviewee’s CV and offers pointers based on career and scholarship goals. This process, serving as a mini-interview, not only prepares the student to present him or herself, but also sharpens that presentation with an eye of experience.


To volunteer, please fill out this form by October 23rd:
