The Student Panel is the student-led leadership group within the Conservation Paleobiology Network. Our goals are to (1) engage the student membership, (2) facilitate networking among students as well as between students and faculty members, postdoctoral researchers, practitioners, and stakeholders, and (3) organize resources, workshops, and community-building activities to help prepare students for future careers in conservation paleobiology. To accomplish these goals, we will collate a list of career-related resources and opportunities for students, including job postings, internships, fellowships, grants, and short courses. We will also organize online workshops to facilitate skill sharing, and we will maintain a student blog to give a voice to the student community and highlight student research. Finally, we will coordinate networking events at conferences and create a platform for students to connect with each other as well as with the broader Community of Practice. We strive to ensure an inclusive and supportive environment in which students at all academic levels can contribute their perspectives and knowledge, ask questions, learn from others, collaborate, and obtain career support.
Want to get involved in the student community? There are many opportunities to engage at different levels, from participating in online training events to joining the student leadership.
Four ways to participate in the CPN student community:
- Join the CPN Student Slack group to connect with other students and receive up-to-date information about network-sponsored events.
- Participate in workshops, discussions, and other training and networking opportunities organized by the Student Panel.
- Lead an online tutorial or write a post for the student blog to share your work with the broader student community.
- Join the Student Panel as a member of the core or supporting leadership. There will be an annual call for applications.
If you are interested in getting involved or would like to provide feedback, please fill out this short survey or email us at students.cpn [at] gmail [dot] com. Additional updates about student activities will be posted here.
