Add to my Calendar 2020-10-19 11:00:00 2020-10-22 16:00:00 NSF BIO-wide Virtual Office Hours Migration to Research.gov October 19, 2020 11:00 AM  to  October 22, 2020 4:00 PM Online Save the Date As highlighted in Important Notice No. 147 and detailed in a recent Dear Colleague Letter (NSF 20-129), in accordance with NSF's proposal submission modernization effort, the Directorate for Biological Sciences (BIO) will implement a requirement for submission of full proposals via Research.gov (or Grants.gov) for BIO solicitations that accept proposal submission at any time, i.e., have no deadlines. This is the first phase in an eventual shift to all proposals being submitted via Research.gov (or Grants.gov) instead of in FastLane.  To support the community through this migration, we are offering a series of BIO-wide virtual office hours during which high-level information about the process will be provided and as an opportunity for the community to ask questions of BIO program officers. The virtual office hours will occur: Mon, Oct 19, 2020, 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM EDT Tues, Oct 20, 2020, 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM EDT Wed, Oct 21, 2020, 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM EDT Thurs, Oct 22, 2020, 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM EDT To register, please visit https://nsf.zoomgov.com/webinar/register/WN_-pXaabftTeiF2phfTaDxIw.

Add to my Calendar 2021-01-29 15:15:00 2021-01-29 16:15:00 Name of the Game: Supporting Transgender Authors in a Technologically Biased World Join PSU's Department of Chemistry for our seminar series. This talk is aimed at defining and contextualizing gender biases that exist within STEM fields and outlining their repercussions within the trans community, emphasizing impacts to trans authors. Particular detail will be paid to addressing why many name change policies within STEM publishing are not supportive of trans authors, how these issues have been successfully remediated, and how trans inclusivity can continue to be centered in publishing and academia. Irving Rettig is a fifth-year Ph.D. candidate in the McCormick Lab at Portland State University. Over the last year and a half, he has worked closely with ACS, RSC, and Nature to develop and implement trans inclusive publishing policies. He is also a member of an academic work group that is advising the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) in rewriting their guidelines on author name change. https://pdx.zoom.us/j/88945698291 chemistry@pdx.edu chemistry@pdx.edu America/Los_Angeles public
