'Applicants must submit a narrative describing their long-term vision for future research with an emphasis on bold projects that have potential for impacts within their areas of interests. The research statement should also summarize the candidate’s prior work as evidence for their potential vision.' Statements like this are commonly found in position announcements with a research emphasis whether in academic institutions, state or federal agencies, or industry. How will you prepare your 'research statement', how will it be structured, and what examples will you use to demonstrate your experiences and potential? Writing an effective research statement is an important first step to move you from being an 'applicant' to an 'interviewee'. During this session, participants will engage in a discussion about strategies for preparing an effective research statement that leverages your experiences and demonstrates your potential.
